Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

My Mental Health Wellness Center, an outpatient adult mental health care center in Los Angeles, California
by Garibay, Samantha N., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 67; 10161768
Abstract (Summary)

Outpatient mental health community clinics and organizations have been faced with the challenge to successfully meet the growing rate of demand for mental health care services. In addition to such, there is a persistent patient need for timely, accessible, affordable, and most importantly quality mental health care services. However, there are many influential factors or barriers, to consider in review of mental health disparities, which can include but are not limited to: inaccessibility, patient social economic status, lack of insurance, ability to pay, lack of transportation, and many other personal and organizational delivery factors, which lead to gaps in one’s care. My Mental Health Wellness Center is a privately owned and operated outpatient non-profit community mental health center, which offers an array of mental health treatment and care management in the city of Los Angeles, California. The focus of My Mental Health Wellness Center is to deliver timely access, affordability, and quality mental health care management to the surrounding patient population regardless of one’s inability to pay for services. My Mental Health Wellness Center intends to provide the highest form of quality care to the Los Angeles mental health patient population while promoting treatment continuity of one’s mental health care. The need for improvement in access and quality treatment of mental health care services has become a national and local priority. This business plan will demonstrate how My Mental Health Wellness Center aims to achieve such priority and become a viable and lucrative business entity.
