Services At Ease Santa Barbara


At Ease provides a variety of services to all public safety personnel and their eligible family members at no cost.  These services include the following:

  • Immediate telephonic consultation assistance in crisis situations available 24-hours a day.
  • Critical Incident Response as requested by the foundation.
  • Confidential Counseling and referral services.
  • Training (Workshops) and Resource Material on a variety of subjects.

The counseling services are provided by the Santa Barbara Police Foundation. However, there are times when individuals are referred to resources outside the program. Should public safety personnel or an eligible family member decide to use these outside resources, they will be responsible for any fees associated with their use.

Public safety personnel are encouraged to contact our office at the first sign of a developing problem.  Early assistance is critical in preventing problems from developing into major issues.

Will My Supervisor Be Notified?

All counseling services are completely confidential unless the law requires divulgence. Your supervisor will not be notified unless you request it. Your counseling sessions will remain confidential between you and the mental health professional.
