The Mental Health Education Consortium Project was designed to alleviate the lack of information and attitudinal barriers that are preventing full educational access and quality instruction for students with psychological disabilities.  The Project has been a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH) and the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD).  The Project received funding from the California Community College Chancellor's Office Fund for Instructional Improvement.  The Project was developed and directed by Deborah Tull at Los Angeles Harbor College.

Project activities have included the following:

  • broad based training (to faculty, student services personnel, students, select members of LACDMH) on the mental health needs of college students that included specific information on the dynamics of mental illness.
  • the design and implementation of a mental health awareness component to college health fairs
  • the development of a Memorandum of Understanding between the LACCD and the LACDMH, which clearly identifies how the two agencies can most effectively work together in support of students with psychological disabilities and
  • the development of this website as a streamlined method of disseminating all Project publications and information on how other colleges throughout the state can replicate the Project and meet the mental health needs of the college community in a more effective way
