YouthWell Community Collaborative

60 partnering agencies in Santa Barbara County convene quarterly including school districts, community-based organizations, providers, healthcare, law enforcement, faith communities, and caregivers.

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.

PROJECTS: Wellness Workshops, Resource Directory, Community Calendar, Our Mental Health Matters Campaign, Convene Collaborative & BHLT, and partner on multiple grants

Behavioral Health Linkages Team

[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.
