Mental Health America of Los Angeles is a national leader in mental health service innovation, training, and advocacy. Each year, we serve more than 9,000 individuals, including transitional-age youth, veterans and their families, and many who are or have been homeless. Founded in 1924, MHALA is recognized for its paradigm of service delivery — now widely used across the country — that meets each person where they are, integrates services, is strength based, and respects clients’ choices for their own progress. With a staff of 400 and multiple sites across Los Angeles County, we offer a full range of services, including mental health services and coordination; housing assistance and placement; employment services; financial and benefits assistance; education; and wellness services.

- We help Veterans and their families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness get housing and jobs.
