The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has approved a motion instructing the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health to initiate Hollywood 2.0, a program to address mental health by adding services. Hollywood 2.0 will use a holistic approach to treating people impacted by mental illnesses, including those experiencing homelessness.
The pilot program will be funded through a $116 million Mental Health Services Act innovation grant. New programs planned include a community mental health center, urgent care center, peer respite center and crisis residential program.
The LACDMH will report back in 90 days on efforts to hire program staff, establish a stakeholder engagement process and identify resource needs. For information, visit dmh.lacounty.gov.
