LGBTQ+ Resources

LACDMH is committed to promoting the wellbeing and resilience of LA County’s LGBTQ+ individuals and communities, which represent a diverse range of gender and sexual expressions, identities and orientations.  While belonging and identifying in this community can be a source of pride and strength, it can also present unique challenges, such as being targeted by acts of homophobia, transphobia or biphobia; trauma from coming out or self-expression in unsupportive environments; or from a lack of culturally-competent mental health services.

Our department stands ready to support your mental health, and our Help Line is available 24/7 at (800) 854-7771 to connect you with mental health professionals and services who are specially qualified to work with LGBTQ+ individuals and families.

We also encourage you to explore the LGBTQ+ programs and resources below to optimize your wellbeing, and participate in our stakeholder engagement process through our LGBTQIA2-S Underserved Cultural Community.
