The California Mental Health Service Authority (CalMHSA), with the support of participating counties and cities has implemented a project called Help@Hand, which aims to build a complementary support system that offers a bridge to care, helps identify early signs of mental health changes, offers timely support, removes barriers, and seeks to include new avenues of care for communities not connected to conventional county services.  Monterey County Behavioral Health (MCBH) and Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH) are two of the participating members of the JPA.  CalMHSA, MCBH and LACDMH are working collaboratively to solicit responses to meet a need initially for Monterey County and Los Angeles County.

Los Angeles County Mini-Grant Program (UPDATE 5/11/2020)

On behalf of the LA County Department of Mental Health, CalMHSA would like to thank all of you for the countless hours spent preparing proposals for this Spring’s grant opportunity.

Unfortunately, we have no choice but to postpone the mini-grants program at this time due to the current Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) which has rendered implementation non-feasible and altered selection criteria. In the months ahead, as we move forward in accordance with State and Local guidance related to the evolving public health crisis, we will reopen the Mini-Grant opportunity and focus on proposals that align with COVID-19 recovery efforts across the County. Your current submissions remain invaluable and will be considered when this program reopens though requests for modification may be made in order to pivot programming as indicated and ensure that proposed program activities are safe in communities.

We appreciate your patience and hope that you, your families, and communities are staying healthy during this time of unprecedented challenge.

Los Angeles County Mini-Grant Program (UPDATE 8/11/2020)

When the LA County Department of Mental Health and CalMHSA set out to provide mini-grants to community innovation projects, the vision was to create community conveneings that brought people together to improve the wellbeing of people in LA County.

The current pandemic has made these kinds of efforts difficult, and we regret to announce that we need to postpone awarding grants until we receive more clarity from state and local partners on how to proceed. Both LACDMH and CalMHSA remain committed to supporting innovative and community-centered mental health efforts, and we are working to adapt grant and program design to meet our new physical distancing realities.

While we cannot fully understand the impact these delays may have on various projects, we appreciate everything that applicants have done to rethink wellbeing in their respective communities, and we hope to revisit this process when the pandemic subsides. Despite the uncertainty, we will continue to support community organizations as we are all in this together. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions, feedback, or concerns.

We will notify all previous and current applicants on all communication channels to ensure everyone is aware as changes develop. We hope you and your communities remain safe and healthy, and we are here to help support despite the challenges we all currently face.
