Project Cal-Well: A 5-Year JourneyView this Resource
The California Department of Education (CDE) is committed to increasing mental health services to support the socioemotional well-being of all students. In 2014, CDE was awarded a five-year Federal grant to implement Project Cal-Well statewide and in partnership with three local education agencies (LEAs).
The Cal-Well mission is to increase awareness of and improve mental health and wellness of California’s students, and provide training for school personnel to detect and respond to mental health issues.
This brief describes the Project Cal-Well model and provides highlights of successes and lessons learned over five years of implementation.
