C.O.P.I.N.G. PROGRAM (805) 487-2015 x200
SPBC Family Life Center provides a community based outreach methodology that is age specific with a focus on reaching youth 18 years of age and younger through support services, brief counseling, assessment, and as needed referral linkages to existing mental health services. We serve as a conduit by which our community may gain valuable resources through education, direct services and referral services for those youth and families that would not access these services in a traditional setting. Our goal is to enhance the quality of life for our community through service provided in a culturally sensitive environment; services that would otherwise, most likely not be accessed by people of color.
Youth and families who may be in need of support and possible mental health services will be identified through the following programs: Crisis "cool" line (phone, email, text); Rap Night Drop In Support Group; Parent Information/Education Forums; Brief Counseling for prescreening and referral. We build trust by having a unique and unconventional approach that is culturally sensitive toward African American youth and other minority youth and families. We minimize stigma associated with mental health services through information and education, so that seeking services will be seen in a more positive light rather than the negative attachment that has historically orevented the use of these services.
