A Conundrum: Helping Mentally Ill Homeless Peopled



As you know, when we founded MBSAFE, we established a relationship with the President of Pacific Palisades Homeless Task Force.

The situation in the Palisades seems similar to the one we are experiencing in the beach cities: a significant increase of homeless individuals, who suffer of mental illness.

Register and join the community meeting on November 16 at 7 pm, featuring LaTina Jackson, who will address Home Teams and the DMH pilot program.

Please, know there is a Home Team available also to the beach cities (region 8). This is an important resource we need to use - they are activated only if they know there is a need. MBSAFE has established a relationship with the Home Team assigned to our region. If you signal us a habitual homeless with mental problem to us, we can signal him/her to them.

Online Community Meeting A Conundrum: Helping Mentally Ill Homeless People Monday, November 16, 2020 7:00 – 8:15 PM | Zoom Webinar

Featured Speaker: LaTina Jackson, Deputy Director at LA County Department of Mental Health

Members of our task force First Responders Committee report seeing more mentally ill homeless individuals on our streets, people who are so mentally ill that they can’t recognize or accept that they need help. Our November meeting will address this problem with speakers who work for the Department of Mental Health in their Homeless Outreach Mobile Engagement (HOME) teams. Join us to learn about the new DMH pilot program to help gravely disabled homeless individuals who refuse mental health services. When you register for the meeting, help us by submitting questions and comments in advance. Let us know what you want to know!

MB SAFE stands for Manhattan Beach - Safe Alternatives for Everyone. We seek to maximize community involvement and support for compassionate solutions for homeless people in our area, as well as for the personal safety and protection of the entire community.
