Encino, California is a small, affluent community located in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles. With more than 44,000 residents, Encino is home to almost 4,000 businesses that employ nearly 30,000 people1. Each year, the community hosts the Earth Day Festival, the largest in Los Angeles.

 

Mental Health Statistics
According to California’s Health and Human Services Agency, in 2000, nearly 8% of all young people and just over 6% of all adults in Los Angeles County had a serious emotional disturbance or mental illness2. Between the years 2005 and 2010, over 15% of residents in the greater Los Angeles area over the age of 12 used drugs or alcohol for non-medicinal purposes, and almost 9% of all county residents reported a substance abuse problem. During that same time period, depression was found in 5.4% of all adults residents3.

 

Large-Scale Mental Healthcare Solutions
As part of Los Angeles County, Encino is able to utilize the services offered through the county’s Department of Mental Health (DMH), which is the largest in the United States. The DMH has over 175 facility sites throughout the county and works with 1,000 different medical providers and organizations to ensure clients in every city receive the mental health services they need4. Staffed by social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, medical doctors, family and marriage counselors, therapists, community liaisons, and trained mental health experts and caregivers, the DMH strives to educate and offer treatment to all of Los Angeles County’s residents.

 

In 2004, the state of California passed Proposition 63, also known as the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA)5. This new law expanded and extended funding to all counties within California, providing the benefit of additional community services, training, technology, and staffing that advance the mental health care opportunities to all Encino residents. Through collaboration with the county and state, Encino provides excellent mental health care and well-being resources to all its citizens and works to improve each individual’s quality of life.

 

Encino is also home to a top-notch hospital with a fully staffed behavioral health department. Care is coordinated between medical professionals at the hospital and work with community representatives to offer a continuum of care for those in need. Psychiatric, psychological, behavioral, and addiction issues are all addressed at intake, and city and county resources are made available to those who qualify.
