The Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH) clinics will remain open for clients, and mobile units will continue to provide field services at this time. Staff at these sites will implement additional safety measures to reduce the risk of Coronavirus exposure and transmission.
“It is crucial that we take every step possible to fight the spread of COVID-19 while maintaining our ability to deliver care to the County’s most vulnerable populations,” said LACDMH Director Jonathan Sherin, M.D., Ph.D. “Our department will continue to collaborate with health and safety agencies at the local, state and federal level to protect the health and wellbeing of our clients, staff and the communities we serve.”
All LACDMH public events and meetings have been canceled, postponed or moved to a virtual platform. Please contact the respective organizer(s) to determine the status of upcoming events.
LACDMH will be closing its non-clinical sites to public access beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, in a precautionary measure to help slow the spread of Coronavirus/COVID-19.
