    The UCLA AOT (Assisted Outreach Treatment) Evaluation team is evaluating the Assisted Outpatient Program (aka Laura's Law) run by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health. UCLA collects data on all aspects of the program, observes the DMH teams and treatment providers at work, and interviews providers, clients, family members, and other stakeholders. Any family member who wishes to share their experience and perspectives on AOT can contact Marcia Meldrum at meldrum@history.ucla.edu, and a team member will follow up for an in-person interview.
