MHALA DURING THIS TIME OF CRISIS AND CHANGE
Mental Health America of Los Angeles opposes racism and discrimination in all forms. We commit to working for equality, inclusion, access, health, and safety for all members of our community. We stand in solidarity with the Black and African American community, and we acknowledge the enormous hurt and destruction that has come from discrimination, racism, and violence in our society. MHALA works to support our staff, those we serve, our partners, and our larger community during this extraordinary time of effort to bring about equity and justice.
Services & Programs How Can We Help?
MHALA’s Transition Age Youth program helps young adults ages 18-25 with mental health needs and emotional disturbances, and who are homeless or nearly homeless, to fully integrate into the community.
Our wellness services include workshops or individual counseling to help members develop or augment skills in areas such as communication, financial management, stress management, or daily living skills.
We believe that Veterans and their families deserve a coordinated effort to feel secure and stable.
Our outreach teams connect with individuals who are living on the streets, parks, and other public spaces to establish relationships that can lead to resolving housing, mental health, and other issues.
Mental Health Services
All MHALA programs staff — whether they are a mental health clinician or not — have training in providing a variety of mental health services to our members.
MHALA assists with housing needs at each step in the process — from housing search to acquisition of housing subsidies to housing retention services.
MHALA’s Employment Program provides employment services to individuals with mental health needs by identifying options for them regardless of their barriers.
