    The Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health returned to the City of West Hollywood with the Rainbow Resilience Pride Health Fair on Sunday to cap off Pride Month. The event, co-sponsored by The Abbey Food & Bar, was held at 665 N Robertson Boulevard. This year was much bigger, with almost three times the number of booths and event space. Rainbow Resilience was also free to enter.

    Members of the community enjoyed free swag, free food, a free rainbow roller skating rink, games, refreshments, music, live entertainment, and lots of resources to support mental health. There was plenty of information about local nonprofit organizations and more.

    The Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH), the largest county mental health department in the country, directly operates more than 85 programs and contracts with providers to provide a spectrum of mental health services to people of all ages to support hope, recovery, and wellbeing.

    Mental health services provided include assessments, case management, crisis intervention, medication support, peer support and other rehabilitative services. Services are provided in multiple settings including residential facilities, clinics, schools, hospitals, juvenile halls and camps, mental health courts, board and care homes, in the field and in people’s homes. Special emphasis is placed on addressing co-occurring mental health disorders and other health problems such as addiction.

    The department also provides counseling to victims of natural or manmade disasters, their families and emergency first responders. The Director of Mental Health is responsible for protecting patients’ rights in all public and private hospitals and programs providing voluntary mental health care and treatment, and all contracted community-based programs. The Director also serves as the public guardian for individuals gravely disabled by mental illness, and is the conservatorship investigation officer for the County.
