The capacity to help those in need of mental health care and services in San Antonio’s Eastside has significantly increased as a result of the Bridges to Care program which links individuals to behavioral health services and training through spiritual and faith-based communities. The Bridges to Care training sponsored by WestCare Texas includes five core areas at no cost to participating community members – Building a Behavioral Health Program, Companionship Training, Mental Health First Aid, Becoming a Trauma-Informed Organization and Suicide Prevention. Bridges to Care San Antonio was launched October 2020 and is modeled after an effective Bridges to Care program in St. Louis.
