Santa Barbara Response Network spreads word about free 24/7 care

SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif.- National Suicide Prevention Month has ended, but the Santa Barbara Response Network is still encouraging the public to reach out if they are in need of social support. 

This network provides free around the clock support during the aftermath of tragic events including homicides and suicides. 

Santa Barbara Response Network was born in 2009 after a string of teen suicides took place, rattling the community.  

They have responded to everything from the Isla Vista Shooting to the Thomas Fire, and hope that more people will become aware of their free services. 


News Channel 3-12 is committed to providing a forum for civil and constructive conversation.
