Los Angeles Maternal Mental Health Access (LAMMHA) is a five year program (2022 – 2027) funded by The California Health Care Foundation (CHCF) to support health centers in Los Angeles to identify and treat common perinatal mental disorders (CPMD) and reduce the risk of suicide. The LAMMHA initiative is a collaboration between Community Clinic Association of Los Angeles County (CCALAC)Elevation Health Partners (EHP)Maternal Mental Health Now (MMHN)Concert Health and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington.
