AB 2022: Wellness and Mental Health Resources and National Hotline

According to the National Association of School Psychologists, "Mentally healthy children are more successful in school and life. Good mental health is critical to children’s success in school and life. Research demonstrates that students who receive social–emotional and mental health support achieve better academically. School climate, classroom behavior, on-task learning, and students’ sense of connectedness and well-being all improve as well. Mental health is not simply the absence of mental illness but also encompasses social, emotional, and behavioral health and the ability to cope with life’s challenges. Left unmet, mental health problems are linked to costly negative outcomes such as academic and behavior problems, dropping out, and delinquency."

In accordance with AB 2022, Pupil mental health services: school notification, the Bear Valley Unified School District wants to ensure that parents, guardians, and students are informed about resources available for anyone who believes they are in a mental health crisis. We encourage parents/guardians and student to talk with any adult in the school district if they are concerned about another student and possible mental health needs. Take all threats of suicide seriously.
