UPCOMING 2022 MEETINGS... 12PM-1:30PM - JUNE 10, AUG 19, SEPT 16, OCT 21, NOV 18


RECORDINGS OF PAST BHLT MEETINGS...


[BHLT] Convene monthly to educate 40+ resource navigators, probation officers, local crisis lines, and school counselors so that they are better equipped to support families.

Mission: Build stronger health linkages in order to foster “warm handoffs” and close the loop when referrals are made to ensure youth and caregivers access services. Increase responsible outreach to our marginalized and vulnerable communities. Share referral experiences and learn from each other. Collect anecdotal data to better understand the barriers and challenges to accessing services.

If you would like to join the monthly meetings, contact Elise at Education@YouthWell.org and we can add you to our email distribution. Hosted by YouthWell, SBC BWell, SBCEO CFRS

Simplify access and connect youth through age 25 and their families to mental health resources before the crisis.
