SOLANO COUNTY, CA — Solano County youth 14 to 21 years old are invited to participate in an upcoming series of free mental health webchats held through Zoom. Mental Health Mondays Webchats are facilitated by student wellness specialists from Solano County Office of Education’s Student and Program Support Department, giving youth a safe space to ask questions and exchange information with their peers about mental health.
Last month, SCOE’s Youth Development Department hosted the “Coping with COVID” webchat series for youth on a wide range of topics including: mental health, stress and anxiety management, mindfulness, and routine and schedules. The series, particularly Mental Health Mondays, was successful and received a positive feedback, and is now extended through June.
“In the wake of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, our young people are facing unprecedented challenges and stresses that can have a lasting impact on their overall well-being,” said Solano County Superintendent of Schools Lisette Estrella-Henderson. “I am inspired by SCOE staff’s commitment, cooperation, and collaboration to use technology to problem-solve and place priority on our students.”
The next four Mental Health Mondays Webchats are scheduled to be held: Monday, June 8; Monday, June 15; Monday, June 22; and Monday, June 29. Each webchat starts at noon and lasts 30-60 minutes.
