PLEASE NOTE: The Health Fellowship component of UCSD RELINK is currently inactive, but we hope to resume soon!
The UCSD RELINK Health Fellowship is an intensive skill-building curriculum that is implemented in the context of a supportive learning community.
The Goal of the Health Fellowship is to prepare young adult reentrants to become independent adults by harnessing their innate strengths and endowing them with new skills. If clients are in need of additional mental health or counseling services, we offer referrals to community providers and resources.
Clients who choose to participate in the Health Fellowship will:
Receive an evidence-based behavioral health curriculum implemented by a licensed therapist
Earn certificates upon completion of each session and a diploma at the end of the program
Our Health Coaches are licensed therapists trained in motivational interviewing techniques, narrative therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and trauma-informed care and are dedicated to work with justice-involved populations.
The Curriculum includes:
Goal-Setting, Problem-Solving, Critical Thinking and Realistic Self Talk
Physical Health (e.g., Nutrition, Substance use/abuse, Physical Activity)
