LA County and California resources
These are resources that Jeri personally checked out.
Please advise us if you experience any issues, thank you.
Jeri researched 4 possibilities for mental health counseling in LA County – possibly free and without having to wait very long. To the best of her ability, she screened these numbers to be sure they will be appropriate to try, but you have to personally make the calls to see if you qualify for help or to make appointments.
