Service Area 4 Resources

Welcome to East Los Angeles

We understand these are difficult times. In our ongoing effort to keep Service Area 4 communities connected and informed, we have organized the following resources in conjunction with our Peer Resource Center to assist you in navigating our network or providers. Additional Countywide mental health resources are also available on our website.

The Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH) supports the wellbeing of our County residents and communities.  LACDMH’s Help Line is available 24/7 to provide mental health support, resources, and referrals at (800) 854-7771.
