Mental Health Needs of SFUSD Youth of Color

  • SFUSD Board of Education 555 Franklin Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

Health and Wellness is a Collective Responsibility!
Support CPA’s Youth Leaders at the upcoming Board of Education Meeting on Tuesday May 14th! We are calling on our community to show up and support our district resolution to pass youth-driven, youth-anchored shifts in policies and practices to ensure collective youth mental health and wellness.

"Our Healing in Our Hands" campaign began in 2017 after our youth witnessed their peers struggle with mental health! Our youth leaders surveyed 1,000 of their peers on their mental health needs and experiences. They came to understand that mental health symptoms are not solely due to individualized problems -- they are rooted in current and historical social and political conditions, which is why ALL of us -- our families, our communities, and our schools must take a stand and provide the mental health resources young people are asking for and deserve.

Meet at the Lobby of SFUSD Office (555 Franklin St) on Tuesday, May 14th @5:30 PM.
