Mental Health

Monterey County Behavioral Health can help people of all ages. We address issues throughout the lifespan, starting at pregnancy and going through senior years. We work with children, youth, adults, and families.

Please call MCBH at 1-888-258-6029 to learn more about services offered.

Additional support is available 24 hours a day through the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-877-663-5433. They provide free and confidential emotional support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress.

The California Department of Education and LivingWorks are offering the 90-minute LivingWorks Start Online Suicide Prevention Training available to middle and high school staff and students (ages 13+) through June 30, 2023. The evidence-based training helps participants learn to recognize when a young person might be experiencing emotional distress or having thoughts of suicide, and teaches them how to connect them to professional help.

This training was made available by AB 1808 to help LEAs meet the training requirements of their suicide prevention policy. If you are a middle or high school teacher, staff, or student, please visit to access the training.
