From The Director
The importance of our work is even more apparent in times like these when the community faces unpredictable and unprecedented challenges. The outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts each person’s mental wellbeing in different ways, and that’s why we continue to expand the wide range of resources available to residents.
Most recently, we have created a new set of guides in multiple languages on how to navigate the effects of COVID-19. We partnered with leading meditation app Headspace to make subscriptions free to all LA County residents through the end of the year. And every day in May we are hosting free virtual events as part of WE RISE 2020, a month-long spotlight on wellbeing and healing through art, music and creative expression.
