The Mental Wellness Center building is located at 617 Garden Street, between the cross streets of Ortega and Cota streets. Parking can be challenging at times, but towards the end of the day, it can become easier to find. There is usually street parking and most of the nearby streets offer unlimited time limits. We also have a parking garage with limited visitor parking spots that must be reserved in advance of your meeting at the Mental Wellness Center. Please do not park in non-visitor parking spots as these spots are reserved for Mental Wellness Center employees and City of Santa Barbara employees and are unavailable for public use during normal business hours.
Lastly, you will find the conference room upstairs in our administrative space on the second floor of the main office building. Follow the stairs or elevator, accessed through the main lobby, and look for conference room A. If you can’t find us, check-in with reception on the second floor and they will assist you further.
