The New Year/Holiday Season is often a challenging time. But this year, amidst the increasing number of COVID-19 cases, restrictions and guidelines, evolving anxieties surrounding new vaccines and the long overdue racial reckoning, it is particularly important to care for your mental wellbeing and that of those around you. A Different Kind of Agency The core of DMG Communication is made up of experienced marketing professional leaders representing strategy, creative, integrated communication planning and execution, media planning and project management. DMG is a manufacturers’ representative for custom engineered, high quality Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) equipment. Since opening in 1967 we have worked closely with consulting engineers, contractors, developers and facility engineers/owners, in the design, selection and purchase of top quality equipment.

The New Year/Holiday Season is often a challenging time. But this year, amidst the increasing number of COVID-19 cases, restrictions and guidelines, evolving anxieties surrounding new vaccines and the long overdue racial reckoning, it is particularly important to care for your mental wellbeing and that of those around you. As Kobe Bryant said, “Everything negative – pressure, challenges – is an opportunity…to rise.”

In a December message, our CEO had some good advice: “Give yourself a gift.” LACDMH has recently launched the LA County Wellbeing Line, which has already served more than 1,000 County employees and frontline workers. It’s free and designed with you in mind. Confidential emotional support by trained listeners and wellbeing resource referrals are available now for any County employee struggling with grief, stress or just looking for more balance in life. This resource line is available 7 days a week, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and can be reached by dialing (833) 307-0509. Gift this resource to yourself and spread the word to co-workers.

Whether you’re looking for a new Director level role, or that first break into the industry, DMG offer a valued, trusted and knowledgeable service. With more than 750 physicians and 120 Chicagoland locations, DuPage Medical Group provides high quality, compassionate healthcare, making healthcare better for our patients and communities.

Also, our LACDMH web resources are “always on,” from resources and guides related to COVID-19 to support for the holidays, plus an ever-growing collection of resources organized by topic. And our partnership with leading meditation app Headspace makes subscriptions free to all LA County residents.

I remain committed and excited about the opportunities ahead. My recent op-ed co-authored with State Senator Howard Stern in the Los Angeles Times outlines opportunities for major reform and improvement in the way that we care for the most vulnerable among us.

We forge ahead into the new year with heart, grit, compassion and new insights – committed to creating a more fully connected County that supports the wellbeing of everyone.

The hard truth about this business is that sometimes a particularly difficult clearance comes along that takes two weeks, to as much as six months, to get done. At dmg, we've got your back. If you were paying hourly, it could run hundreds of dollars for a single clearance. That's why we go with a flat fee. To save you the hassle. To save you the bucks.
