Coping with COVID-19


May is Mental Health Awareness Month! It's a time to provide support to each other and advocate against the stigma around mental health.

Through the WHY WE RISE initiative, the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health is hosting dozens of virtual events in May. WE RISE 2020: Virtual May spotlights well-being and healing through art, music and creative expression. You'll find opportunities for creativity, conversation and connection even while we remain physically apart.

  • one-on-one conversations and live performances by diverse artists and celebrities;
  • family-friendly activities like story time and art workshops;
  • a live event honoring the military and veterans on Memorial Day weekend; and
  • a virtual prom and graduation celebration!

WE RISE 2020: Virtual May gives us the chance to build community with each other, take time for self-reflection and connect to resources — all for free. See how we can help each other heal and thrive during this pandemic.
