The Mental Health Association in Santa Barbara County welcomes Chrystie Lewis as its new Mental Health First Aid coordinator.

Lewis will be teaching, coordinating and administering the Mental Health First Aid program at the Mental Health Association.

Mental Health First Aid is an interactive, 12-hour course funded by the Mental Health Services Act that teaches participants about the risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems and provides an overview of common treatment options.

Lewis brings to the Mental Health Association her years of experience working in social services. She previously served as a crisis and long-term counselor for the Rape Crisis Center in Santa Barbara.

She has volunteered with numerous organizations, including the Bell-Jeff Salvation Army Homeless Shelter, the UC San Diego Medical Center and with the Los Angeles Lakers summer basketball camp.

Lewis earned a bachelor’s degree in communication from UCSB and she is working toward a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Antioch University.

The Mental Health Association is a private, nonprofit organization providing support, housing and advocacy to adults and families affected by severe mental illness.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
