The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), through a contract with the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission, is conducting an evaluation of the Mental Health Services Act. This evaluation effort includes a participatory research component in which consumers and family members of consumers will help us identify service or program strategies, outcomes and the evaluation methods to be used.
We are inviting consumers and family members to join in this evaluation effort by attending a regional planning meeting or a statewide conference call (as described below).
Consumer and family members who would like to participate in one of the regional meetings or the statewide conference call, can simply send an email to or call
- Laura Valles at email@example.com or (323) 899-2735 for meetings in Spanish
- Todd Sosna at firstname.lastname@example.org or (805) 452-1010 for meetings in English
In addition, we are interested in input from other stakeholder groups, as described in the final section of this letter.
If you represent a county, private provider, community organization, or other stakeholder, and would like to join one of the statewide conference calls, please send an email to Todd Sosna at email@example.com and you will be registered.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to consider this invitation.
If you have questions about participating in any aspect of this project please contact Todd Sosna, Ph.D., at firstname.lastname@example.org or (805) 452-1010, or Laura Valles at email@example.com or (323) 899-2735.
