The Key to Getting Help for Serious Mental Illness
Welcome to La CLAve
La CLAve began as an initiative to help families identify the symptoms of serious mental illness in their loved ones and assist them in seeking early treatment.
This effort started in Puebla, Mexico and in the San Fernando Valley within Los Angeles County primarily targeting the Spanish-speaking Latinx community. Since then it has extended to Kern, Ventura, and Riverside Counties, as well as to Mexico City (Insitituto Nacional de Psiquiatría Ramon de la Fuente).
The two primary goals of the La CLAve project are (a) to initiate conversations about serious mental illness within communities and (b) to reduce treatment delay for those early in their illness course.
We welcome collaboration with other communities both within and outside the United States.
