Mental Health Education
Join the movement in Santa Barbara County to strengthen our community.
Because we can all be more aware and more informed.
Take a course. Change a life.
Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. Learn the importance of early intervention. Learn the risk factors and warning signs for mental health and substance use concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and how to connect youth to appropriate care.
