Barbour & Floyd Medical Associates was founded by two African
American psychiatrists (Dr. Jack Barbour & Dr. Reta Floyd). It is
being funded as one of the original six Los Angeles County Department of Mental
Health (LACDMH) agencies in 1993. This program was named PARTNERS. In
2003, the PARTNERS program transitioned to provide a managed care and
integrated approach to mental health services under the Assertive
Community Treatment (ACT) model of service provision. Beginning fiscal
year (FY08-09) Barbour & Floyd Medical Associates had the
opportunity to transform a portion of their services to MHSA - FCCS
services for adult and older adult populations.
The Barbour & Floyd Medical Associates Medi-Cal
certified program site is located at 2640 Industry Way, Suite B, Lynwood
CA 90262. Beginning (FY2011-2012), the Prevention & Early Intervention Services for Adults & Older Adults, became a part of Barbour & Floyd Medical Associates. The PEI Program is located at 2640 Industry Way, Suite A, Lynwood, CA 90262. Because there is consistency between the culture of the
staff and the client population, cultural discrepancies are minimized.
The clients are able to bond with the staff, the program and the other clients based on their cultural similarities. All aspects of service
delivery reflect the values of the African American and Latino
communities. Barbour & Floyd Medical Associates is culturally
consistent and also realizes the importance of involving families in the
planning and delivery of services.
The mission of this agency is to provide coordinated, integrated
services to the most underrepresented population in the public health
system. As a direct service provider to a multi-faceted array of adults, this agency is concerned about outcomes and is committed to conducting
ongoing evaluation of the services it provides. Barbour & Floyd
Medical Associates also provides a range of programs and services
designed for older adults (60+) who reside in Los Angeles County. Mental
Health services are available in both English and Spanish. Services
include outreach and engagement, screening and assessment, individual counseling, case management, crisis intervention and medication support services. As a result of the Mental Health Services Act,
often referred to as "Prop 63", new programs and services have been
added. These include Recovery, Resilency, Reintegration (RRR), Full Service Partnership (FSP), and the Prevention & Early Intervention services for Adults & Older Adults (PEI).
