Provider: LOS ANGELES COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF MENTAL HEALTH - AUGUSTUS F. HAWKINS FAMILY MENTAL HEALTH CENTER

The agency provides welfare-to-work support services for mentally/emotionally disturbed individuals who receive or are eligible to receive CalWORKs and live in the South area, (SPA 6) of Los Angeles County. There are special programs through the center's Latino mental health center for Spanish-speaking TANF recipients. There are no geographic restrictions.

Services may include general counseling services, including individual, couple and family therapy; in-person crisis intervention; medication monitoring; mental health evaluation; and psychiatric case management. An assessment for medical conditions which may aggravate the mental/emotional condition and appropriate referrals are also made.

The program serves youth from birth to age 18.

Child care is provided and transportation assistance, such as van pick-up, taxi vouchers or bus fare, is provided on a case-by-case basis. APPLICATION PROCEDURE Call for non-urgent appointments. Walk in for urgent/emergency care. FEES/PAYMENT SOURCE There are no fees for CalWORKs participants.
