It takes viewers on a creative journey, showcasing the human impact and environmental issues. Through an interactive presentation, attendees become the hero capable of making a difference.

MHALA is hosting a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs mobile medical unit at our Palmdale location monthly!

Fundraising Events

Proceeds from MHALA fundraising events are earmarked toward the services and programs we provide our members.

Our annual gala, Under the Toque, brings together some of the area’s top chefs for an extravagant dining experience, coupled with live and silent auctions. This is one of Long Beach’s premier events, with proceeds benefitting the work we do for our members at MHALA. In 2023, Under the Toque honored Patti LaPlace for her commitment to mental health advocacy.

We also team up with area businesses to host meaningful events that help us boost our efforts toward helping our members access the resources and support they need to overcome significant challenges.
