This was the first of four meetings open to all DMH stakeholders and community members held at LA Trade Technical College on 7/25. Although the focus of this first meeting was on developments and programs relevant to Service Area 4, the underlying issues and problems being addressed are pertinent to all DMH Service Areas and beyond.
