Message From The Director

Lisa Wong, Psy.D., Sr. Deputy Director

On July 1st I officially began my new role as the Acting Director of the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health. It is an honor to be able to serve the County in this capacity – especially to be able to serve our clients, and the thousands of dedicated DMH employees, partners, and allies who work on the front lines and behind the scenes to provide mental health services throughout our system of care. Some of you may know that I have been a part of the DMH family for many years – 34, in fact, on November 4th this year. I began my DMH career as a student in Skid Row, where I stayed for over 23 years working with people experiencing serious mental illness and homelessness. Most recently, I oversaw DMH’s clinical programs and community-based services as the Senior Deputy Director.
