LACDMH recently posted its annual update for Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) programs and expenditures for FY 2022/2023, giving L.A. County residents and stakeholders an opportunity to review current MHSA services and provide feedback. The public is invited to review this plan and provide feedback by filling out our online survey by April 6, 2022.
In his Director’s Message for this update, Dr. Sherin emphasized the importance of community engagement and highlighted several key expansions and improvements that were informed with public input, such as launching our Community Ambassador Network, expanding our Homeless Outreach and Mobile Engagement (HOME) program, and redesigning our Full Service Partnership (FSP) program.
“Since its passage, the MHSA has provided LACDMH and the myriad communities we serve with an unprecedented opportunity to engage and partner in developing and promoting a shared plan for impact,” Dr. Sherin wrote. “Building on the successes achieved over the years, we have doubled down on our investment in stakeholder engagement . . . to help catalyze the processes we need in place to plan properly and transparently.”
In addition to the survey, community members are also invited to attend and participate in LACDMH’s public hearing about the annual update on April 14, 2022, at noon.
