Convene monthly to educate 50+ resource navigators, probation officers, local crisis lines, and school counselors so that they are better equipped to support families. Hosted by YouthWell, SBCEO, and SB County BWell. Email info@youthwell.org if you are interested in joining the BHLT. [formerly the Behavior Health Linkages Team] 

Mission: As a network, we are committed to strengthening partnerships and building 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.

MISSION & VISION

VIEW PARTNERS >

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: Support Groups, Wellness Workshops, Resource Directory, Community Calendar, Resource Rack Cards & Posters, Our Mental Health Matters Campaign, Convene Collaborative & Youth Linkages Network, and partner on multiple grants.
