LA’s clinics are paving the way for integrative care by providing a host of behavioral health services at their sites. The following section highlights expansions in mental health services provided by clinics.
The number of mental health visits provided by community clinics has increased by 68% from 2012-2015.
This increase occurred in 6 of the 8 SPAs, with the most dramatic gains occurring in SPA 6.
Overall, clinics also increased capacity to provide mental health services, given the boost in the number of mental health providers (psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, and licensed social workers).
These are key findings from CCALAC’s 2018 Network Adequacy Report.
This project was funded by L.A. Care Health Plan to benefit low-income and uninsured residents of Los Angeles County.
