Mental illness can have wide-reaching effects on a person’s health, educational achievement, employment and well-being. Didi Hirsch’s experts provide evidence-based treatment to low-income children and adults with mental disorders or behavioral challenges. Integrated care is available at many of our outpatient and residential facilities. We also have programs to help recovering adolescents and adults build resilience and coping skills.
We provide outpatient treatment and psychiatric medication management to adults with mental illness. Adults can receive individual and group counseling as well as employment help in our program. We connect clients to community resources for housing, medical help, insurance benefits and in-home support services.
Child and Family Programs
Our four child and family clinics in South Los Angeles, Pico-Union and the cities of Glendale and Inglewood offer outpatient mental health services for children and teens from birth to 21 years of age and their families. Bilingual therapists at each site provide services including individual, group and family therapy, case management, parent education and medication management when needed. In addition to services at our clinics, we provide in-home and telehealth services via phone and video sessions.
Schools recognize that emotional support for students is as important as academic support. Therapists from our four child and family clinics offer mental health services at schools in the neighborhoods near our clinics. Therapists work with students and their families and coordinate with teachers to help surround students with the supports they need to grow and build resilience. We provide school-based services in five school districts, five charter organizations and in individual charter schools in LA County.
Intensive services are for children and adults who are experiencing serious behavioral or emotional difficulties but do not need inpatient care. With Intensive services, qualified children and adults can receive therapy, housing support, employment help and other services in their own homes or community settings.
Residential Treatment Programs
Adults with acute mental health issues can receive crisis residential treatment at Jump Street and Excelsior House, short-term alternatives to psychiatric hospitalization that help clients stabilize, develop new skills, form relapse prevention plans and connect with community treatment and supports. Women with mental health and substance use issues can remain housed with children up to age six at Via Avanta, our long-term residential treatment program in Pacoima.
ARMUNITY helps individuals and families in the Armenian community of Los Angeles find and receive quality mental health care.
