Foundations of Mental Health

The Foundations of Mental Health curriculum provides psychoeducation and instruction about mental wellness and mental health conditions, de-stigmatizes mental health topics and help-seeking behaviors, and helps students understand how to access appropriate mental health support.

This 8-lesson introductory series meets requirements for CA SB224 and CA Educational Code 51925 for Health classes at the secondary level. It was developed with guidance from Sonoma County youth, educators, and more than 35 local youth- and community-serving agencies.
