The Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH) offers services to all ages, including mental health assessments, crisis intervention, case management and medications support in both residential and outpatient settings. Our workforce includes psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and nurses.

We’re committed to creating inclusive communities as well as eliminating stigma and discrimination.

Our film series, Profiles of Hope, promotes an anti-stigma message for those diagnosed with mental illness.

We seek the stories of high-profile personalities, willing to share their experiences and struggles with mental illness, substance abuse, or any challenge they encountered to their emotional “wellness.”

The Profiles of Hope project shows just how common it is for individuals and families to suffer the stigma of a mental illness, and how important it is to reach out to a compassionate community.
