Coronavirus/COVID-19 Mental Health Resources

The Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH) supports the wellbeing of our County residents and communities. News and updates about COVID-19 may trigger anxiety, panic, frustration and depression—even when your risk of getting sick is low. During an infectious disease outbreak, please take the time to care for your own physical and mental health, and please reach out to others in kindness and compassion.

LACDMH has published the following materials to address mental health & wellbeing needs and concerns:

LACDMH’s 24/7 Help Line at (800) 854-7771 is available to provide mental health support, resources and referrals. (LACDMH facility updates are available here.)

LACDMH has partnered with Headspace to offer a collection of mindfulness and meditation resources – for free – to all LA County residents.  The free Headspace Plus subscription includes access to hundreds of science-backed guided meditations in English and Spanish, as well as movement and sleep exercises to help manage stress, fear and anxiety related to COVID-19.

LACDMH is also a part of PsychHub’s COVID-19 Mental Health Resource Hub, which is dedicated to providing free resources to help people address their mental health needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
