YourDMH is the active partnership between Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH) and a diverse group of stakeholders who work collaboratively with consumers, family and community members in a process that generates meaningful input on mental health policy, program planning, and implementation, monitoring, quality improvement, evaluation, and budget allocations.

The purpose of YourDMH is to produce community-driven stakeholder priorities that will provide feedback to guide LACDMH in the development of its Departmental Action Plan. This Action Plan, an extension of LACDMH’s Strategic Plan, is congruent with high-level organizational changes that LACDMH is pursuing to create new and strengthen existing partnerships and improve services including all necessary policies, program designs, information technology supports and quality monitoring activities. Mental Health Services Act (MHSA)-specific activities, including the development of the Three Year Plan, Annual Updates, and Innovation Programs, are drawn from this broader Action Plan.
