about BHLT


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.

about collaborative


Vision: Increase youth mental health prevention and early intervention efforts. Work towards systemic change that encourages collaboration so that we can fill the gaps and remove barriers to services for all youth and their families so that they can access the care they need in a timely manner through a warm handoff.

Mission: Prioritize prevention, and early intervention (PEI). Eliminate stigma through education and provide tools and tips for managing mental wellness and practicing self-care in order to build resilience. Simplify access and connect youth through age 25 and their families to mental health resources before the crisis.

This form is for YouthWell Community Collaborative partners.

"*" indicates required fields

Non Profit, Business, Agency, or School Name
Please select the areas that your organization serves in Santa Barbara County
Please specify what level of care your organization addresses. (schools can choose prevention)


Our organization/school is committed to the vision, goals, and objectives and being an active PARTNER of the YouthWell Community Collaborative.

We will continue to work together towards systemic change to eliminate stigma, fill the gaps, and remove barriers to services so that all youth and their families can access the care they need in a timely manner through a warm handoff.

We prioritize prevention and early intervention with the goal of connecting youth through age 25 and families in Santa Barbara County to mental health resources.
The Community Collaborative meets quarterly. We ask that partnering organizations send a leader from your organization to attend. A leader in our organization (ie: CEO/Superintendent) will attend quarterly meetings, and respond in a timely way to email communication.
In order to increase communication and awareness, we will do our best to keep YouthWell updated on our organization’s related activities so that they can be promoted in the community.

We will disseminate relevant information (ie: workshops, promoting resource directory & calendar) to staff, board members, families, and community members connected to our organization.
Our organization/school is committed to keeping our information up to date in the online Resource Directory and adding our classes and trainings to the Community Calendar. We understand this benefits families, school counselors, and resource navigators in accessing information more quickly.


We ask that each partner make a financial contribution to the work of the collaborative. We do not want a financial reason to keep any organization from joining so please contact us if this is a hardship.

To show our commitment, our organization agrees to pay a YouthWell Community Collaborative membership contribution for 2023.
