Wellness Center Support
The Wellness Centers have a team of dedicated staff that deliver programs, training and resources to students, staff, families and the community in the areas of tobacco, alcohol and other drug use prevention and intervention; pregnant and parenting teen services; LGBTQIA+ programs; bullying and violence prevention; suicide prevention and mental health.
Today's teens are bombarded with pressures from every direction. The influx of social media, peer relationships, pressure to vape and engage in substance use and high expectations to perform at school all have an impact on how teens cope with life.
Mental health and wellness is a growing concern for teens and their parents, the depression rate in teens has increased from 8.3 percent (in 2008) to 10.7 percent (in 2013) (Center for Disease Control) and teens experiencing anxiety is also on the rise.
The RJUHSD recognizes the need to support the whole student and School Based Wellness Centers provide trained mental health professionals available to students in distress and more importantly to intervene before a crisis happens.
Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE)
Our TUPE program is funded through the Tobacco Use Prevention Education grant from the California Department of Education. With these funds, our district is able to support Wellness Centers with tobacco related needs, provide interventions for students as an alternative to suspensions, support tobacco reduction and cessation and provide education. Students can receive support through staff or self referral. We offer confidential self referrals. If you want or need support with reducing your use or quitting, reach out to your counselor, any Wellness Center Staff, or email us directly.
LGBTQIA+ Programs and Services
The Wellness Center staff provide district-wide support to LGBTQIA+ students, staff and families. The staff facilitate awareness building training on LGBTQIA+ issues, provide coordination and support for campus clubs and other site-based LGBTQ programs, and consult with RJUHSD school staff on creating LGBTQIA+ inclusive and affirming campuses and classrooms.
