LTSC conducts outreach and education to increase awareness mental health services by Japanese and Japanese American families and individuals when they are needed. A part of that work involves overcoming social stigma and developing an awareness of tools and resources for counseling, support groups and educational workshops. Our counselors provide culturally sensitive and linguistically appropriate services to the Japanese American community throughout Southern California and uses a variety of therapies that cut through cultural barriers to understanding.
Services are provided on a sliding scale that allows everyone, regardless of income, to receive counseling. In addition to direct services, LTSC also sponsors educational seminars for the general population and service providers.
