At Hope Counseling Center, we are committed to raising awareness in the Santa Barbara community about mental health needs and care. One of the ways we do this is by offering educational seminars on a range of topics in the field of mental health. We offer these as a service to local congregations, schools, businesses, or organizations. If you are interested in learning more about our speaking topics or availability, please contact us!
