SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Dec. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Santa Barbara Behavioral Health, a respected behavioral health company in California, has announced a rebrand of its visual identity to unite with its parent company, LifeStance Health. Since November 2019, Santa Barbara Behavioral Health has been part of the LifeStance Health family. Now, the practice will unify with other LifeStance Health clinics across the country under the LifeStance Health name.
Santa Barbara Behavioral Health will officially change its name to LifeStance Health on March 1, 2021, though the transition will begin in early January. The rebrand solidifies the company's stance as an industry leader offering compassionate, convenient, and comprehensive mental health services. As the need for access to high-quality behavioral health services has grown over the years, Santa Barbara Behavioral Health and LifeStance Health have risen to meet those needs. Now, they'll continue to do so under one name, improving access to quality care as they continue to grow across the country.
"Joining the LifeStance family has allowed us to expand and offer more services and resources to our patients," said Robert Friedman, MD and division president at LifeStance Health. "By taking on the brand's name, we will only continue to expand access to high-quality mental health care in California. Our patients can continue to rely on the same compassionate providers, insurance coverage, and comprehensive care that they have come to know."
"With the events of this year, the need for mental health care is more urgent than ever. Rebranding under LifeStance Health will prove to be important for our providers, patients and communities while we work to close the gap in access to affordable mental health services," said Michael Lester, CEO of LifeStance Health. "I'm proud of the work our team has put into this transition, and I look forward to seeing where we go next. While the name might be different on our clinics, our mission to improve access to compassionate, comprehensive, and convenient mental health services remains the same."
