The Public Information Office (PIO) staff develop and implement effective communications and media relations to continually increase community awareness of department services.

Community Outreach and Education (CORE ) conduct countywide community-based educational activities with various cultural and ethnic groups to increase knowledge regarding behavioral health services and access to community resources.

Access to information is vital to the process of understanding mental health and substance abuse, as well as reducing stigma around behavioral health issues. Outreach and education is essential to the department’s mission to achieving personal and community wellness, recovery and resilience. The San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health strives to increase access to quality resource information by providing mental health publications. Please contact for more information.
