Eastlake High Student Wellness Promotion Programs
Eastlake strives to support student wellness by providing numerous Wellness Promotion Programs. The following are a few of the programs put in place:
Wellness Wednesdays In an effort to increase social and emotional supports at Eastlake High, the counselors send Wellness Wednesday messages to encourage students and staff to be the best they can be! Our Wellness Wednesday messages consist of self-care tips and a kindness challenge. The weekly message is shown on the bulletin, sent out through Jupiter and is announced in classrooms. There are also activities every Wednesday at lunch to promote student and staff wellness.
Military Family Counselors If students have a parent in the military (active or reserves), there is a Military Family Life Counselor located in the Counseling Center to support students with academics and social/emotional needs. The student’s school counselor can make the connection with the military counselor.
Wellness Together Counseling Program Wellness Together, a California 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, partners with schools statewide to increase access to mental health services for students and families. Wellness Together provides social-emotional interventions on school campuses across California. Your student’s counselor can make a referral to the program.
Talk to any trusted adult for help!
Every day in California friends, family and co-workers struggle with emotional pain. And, for some, it's too difficult to talk about the pain, thoughts of suicide and the need for help. Though the warning signs can be subtle, they are there. By recognizing these signs, knowing how to start a conversation and where to turn for help, you have the power to make a difference – the power to save a life.
