Construction is well-underway on the new Mental Health America of Los Angeles (MHALA) facility, which is set to bring mental and physical health care services, as well as employment support and opportunity, housing support and more to Midtown.
“Our agency really believes in providing integrated, comprehensive services . . . for people on the street,” MHALA President and CEO Christina Miller said. “We provide life skills and wellness programs. We help people get benefits and help them get into education.”
Once the new 26,000-square-foot, two-story facility is complete at 1955 Long Beach Blvd., MHALA will transition out of its current space, the Village, at 456 Elm Ave., which consists of about 27,000 square feet on four floors. MHALA will occupy and operate about 20,000 square feet of space, including a 2,000 square foot community center that will be open to the public after hours Monday through Friday for events and meetings.
