The dynamic mental health landscape has placed undue strain on hospitals, providers, and the community at large, resulting in gross inequities in access to care for underserved populations. This business plan proposes the establishment of a Los Angeles area non-profit community mental health clinic, embedded with a mission to accept adult patients suffering from co-occurring mental health and chronic medical conditions, regardless of insurance status and ability to pay. Under the Patient Centered Medical Home model, the aim of the Clinic will be to treat patients holistically by incorporating an interdisciplinary team of clinicians to ensure optimal health outcomes. While this plan acknowledges the challenges in serving indigent populations, the Clinic will contract with Medi-Cal and commit to continuous fundraising efforts to remain financially sustainable in order to improve the health of vulnerable Angelenos.
