Topic: Mental Health Crisis Services in Santa Barbara County

Speaker: John Winckler, Manager, Crisis Services, Santa Barbara County Dept. of Behavioral Wellness

What do I do if my loved one experiences a mental health crisis? How does 5150 process (involuntary inpatient evaluation) work? Who do I call? Will my loved one get arrested instead of treatment? What if 5150 process doesn’t result in a “hold”? These are all questions families have and which will be addressed in the presentation. An overview of the new Crisis Services “Hub” at 315 Camino Del Remedio will also be presented, highlighting the Crisis Stabilization unit, Mobile Crisis Team, referral to Crisis Residential program and other services available. Q &A session will follow presentation.
