Project Cal-Well, a cross-agency mental health initiative led by the California Department of Education, produced this easy-to-use Family Guide to Supporting Young People’s Mental Health and Well-Being. The guide helps parents and other adult family members and caregivers navigate supporting the overall well-being and mental health of school-aged children.
BeWell is a virtual wellness space that offers evidence-based practices, resources, tools, and strategies for education professionals to support their emotional regulation and well-being. Strategies are organized into three categories – calm yourself, activate yourself, and increase your well-being – that users can choose from based on their mental or emotional state.
The purpose of this brief is to define school climate, identify its domains which provides a framework for identifying strategies, and practices; and provides recommendations for assessing school climate.
