Mental Health Resources

The Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH) supports the well being of our County family, friends and colleagues.

These signs of stress are normal and may be more likely in people with loved ones in parts of the world affected by the outbreak. During an infectious disease outbreak, care for your own physical and mental health and reach out in kindness to those affected by the situation.
