It was way back in 1850 when Los Angeles was first incorporated as a city. But its massive growth had just begun. Between 1870 and 1900 this area grew from a measly 5,000 people to well over 100,000, a growth rate of 20 times over a mere 30 years. Today, it is a booming metropolis people from around the world and all walks of life.1 Some of the most famous communities include Hollywood, Westside and Orange County. These communities are well known for their glamour, the stars and the overall lifestyle. Today, LA has one of the most powerful localized economies in the US and is home to people of all cultures, backgrounds, and races.

Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Los Angeles

Couples and families across the nation face many obstacles. Unemployment, inadequate housing, domestic violence, and drug use are all common causes of stress on family relationships. As of 2012, nearly 231,000 Los Angeles residents were unemployed.2 For poverty-stricken families, adequate housing can be extremely difficult to find. For the thousands of families that have experienced domestic violence or spousal abuse,3 or witnessed family members using or abusing drugs, the challenges in obtaining a happy, successful life are that much greater.

Fortunately, there are many resources in Los Angeles for families in need of behavioral health services. The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services offers a number of programs to help improve couples and family functioning. Various parenting classes are available, including those for single parents. Parents who are interested in learning about proper child safety seat installation can take advantage of the Car Safety Seat Guide. Foster and adoptive parent orientation programs are also available. For additional information, call 213- 351-5507.4

Family Services and Assistance Programs

Many Los Angeles families include elderly members who need extra help in maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. The Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles provides many services for elder members of society. Community-based centers are located throughout the Los Angeles area and provide easy access to senior care resources. Transportation, meal service, and fitness activities are just a few of the programs offered. If you or a member of your family is in need of elderly care, contact the Jewish Family Service at 877-275-4537.5
