LADMC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity which strives to improve the lives of residents in Los Angeles County through public health education, community engagement initiatives, health fairs, professional growth programs, and nurse leadership training. The critical shortage of qualified mental health workers, especially the BHU Nurses, is still rising, hence the Foundation’s own commitment to support and raise mental health awareness and behavioral health nursing, is crucial.

Our community outreach programs touch on community education regarding access to prevention and treatment, engagement in care and improving care quality. We provide behavioral health topics including integrating physical and mental health, and best practices in mental health and substance disorder services.

And LADMC hospital has a county contract to help homeless people needing treatment for their acute behavioral/mental illness. The Foundation has been very instrumental in providing placement for this population, after his/her acute hospitalization.

 Please join us in our cause,

 AND…. As we say, Say “I DO” to giving back!
