Santa Barbara Response Network (SBRN) is a grassroots, 501(C)3 non-profit dedicated to supporting fellow community members’ through traumatic experiences and toward resilient recovery. We respond to those affected by suicide, violence, natural disasters and any other traumatic incidents.
In light of the novel COVID-19 pandemic, our community is facing a new type of traumatic stress and SBRN is committed to evolving and meeting the needs of the community.
Volunteers are trained in Psychological First-Aid (PFA) to respond to those impacted by trauma. PFA supports individuals and communities on the road to resilient recovery. We do not offer therapy, but rather organic support through person-to-person interactions.
SBRN has adopted the Lost Art of Love Letters under our umbrella. This organization shares a similar philosophy and focus on recovery in our community.
