The Mental Wellness Center maintains a peer-run Friendship Line for consumers in South Santa Barbara County available Monday through Friday from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. The number is (805) 319-9606. This is not a crisis line, but it is a great opportunity to talk to peers about anything of concern: “Don’t be lonely. We are compassionate listeners who want to hear your story. Call us.”
Please spread the word to consumers, family members and providers. If you need flyers or cards to pass on to others, please either call the Mental Wellness Center, 884-8440, or the Friendship Line during its hours of operation.
