LA County Department of Mental Health Providers

The Provider Directory dataset contains information on the locations of publicly funded Outpatient Mental Health Services and 24 Hour Acute Psychiatric Inpatient Care facilities served by the County of Los Angeles, Department of Mental Health (LACDMH).  It does not include information on individual names of clinicians.


LACDMH provides mental health services in the County through directly operated and contracted providers.  These providers are located throughout the eight Service Planning Areas (SPAs) of the County. Data on providers include Service Location, Phone Number, Specialty Mental Health Services and services available for specific cultures and languages.

This information is updated quarterly by the LACDMH – Quality Improvement Division under Program Support Bureau.  Provider information is updated only after verification of completion of the PFAR process.

Hard copies of the Provider Directory are available at the following weblink


Provider information can be searched online at: http://maps.lacounty.gov/dmhSL/
