Serving The Community for Nearly 100 Years

Mental Health America of Los Angeles is an enduring leader in mental health systems change throughout California. 

We have an extensive, proven history of changing lives by:


Adults and young adults living with mental health conditions; veterans seeking to rebuild their lives after service, and people living on the streets with chronic health conditions.


To improve access to care; about the mental health needs of adults and youth; and to create greater acceptance of people living with mental health conditions.


To advance quality care for adults and youth with mental health needs, and to abolish discrimination in funding, health care, jobs, and housing.


Mental health staff, agencies, and organizations who want to learn about and use our nationally recognized integrated services and "quality of life" outcomes system; and to teach the mental health workforce of tomorrow.


We are an affiliate of Mental Health America, the nation's leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to helping people achieve wellness by living mentally healthier lives.
