YOUTHWELL PARTNERS

YouthWell Community Collaborative

This group convenes quarterly to work towards systemic change with 45+ engaged community partners including school districts, organizations, healthcare, providers, law enforcement, juvenile probation, and faith communities. We prioritize education, prevention, and early intervention with the goal of connecting youth through age 25 and families in Santa Barbara County to mental health resources before the crisis. We continue to work together 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.

Behavioral Health Linkages Team [BHLT] convenes monthly to educate the 40+ resource navigators, local crisis lines, and school counselors throughout the county so that they are better equipped to support families. They work to improve mental health referral process in order to foster “warm handoffs” and close the loop to ensure that youth and caregivers are accessing the services they need in SB County. We are also working together to increase responsible outreach to the most marginalized and vulnerable communities.
