Psychiatric mental disorder treatment

Co-founder & COO

Lilla Dee

Lilla Dee studied and practiced family law in London, UK before moving to Los Angeles.

During those long hours at court she realised first hand the global need and issue of  addressing mental health problems.

She  believes that far less people would end up in court, and get caught up in bitter and lengthy legal proceedings having sought out help first.
She witnessed many families suffering as a consequence of a mental disorder due to lack of knowledge, understanding and resources.
She understands there is still a stigma attached to “not feeling right”, however she firmly believes that there is hope.
Therefore she decided to do something. Co-founding Clear MInd Treatment is her way of giving back and raising awareness.
Lilla has extensive experience in helping others, she worked and volunteered with special needs children and adults also offered free legal advice and help for victims of domestic violence and kidnap throughout her 20-year career.
