Mental Health Workers Celebrated

Commitment, Intervention and Recovery for Healthy Communities

The First Annual Mental Health Awareness celebration was held June 6 at the Los Angeles SEIU 721. This event honored the work done by Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health and Community Clinics workers, and their contribution to the mental health of our communities.

Many outstanding union leaders who are dedicated to representing worker rights and quality services to Mental Health clients were honored.

“What a great start to a worthy tradition for Mental Health Services members.” – Ron Ruiz, Los Angeles County Information Systems Analyst II, JLM Chair and Integration Task Force Committee  

“It is inspirational celebrating Mental Health Awareness and recognizing Local 721 members contributions to the citizens of Los Angeles County. We Care!” – Patrick Del Conte, Los Angeles County Recreation Therapy Supervisor and SEIU 721 Executive Board member

Congratulations to all our DMH members who fought hard to implement MHSA and bring in the necessary resources.
