Dear County and District Superintendents, Charter School Administrators, and High School Principals:

2020 California Student Mental Wellness Conference

We invite you to participate in the Fourth Annual California Student Mental Wellness Conference: Promoting Student Mental Wellness and Improving School Climate. The conference is sponsored by Wellness Together and the California Department of Education and takes place on March 23–24, 2020, at the Anaheim Convention Center.

The principal focus of this two-day conference is to learn about interventions and resources to successfully support students who may have mental health needs and to discover new ways to keep our students engaged in learning despite any behavioral difficulties they may be experiencing.

Our collaborative efforts to support student academic success are more effective when individual mental health needs are met. This conference will both inspire and assist education and community partners to identify systematic strategies that support student and staff mental wellness. State and national subject matter experts will share the latest research, evidence-based programs, and promising practices designed to create safe and nurturing environments.

Together, we can continue to advocate for the mental wellness of California's students, families, and educators!

For more information on the conference, please visit the Wellness Together web page at

If you have any questions regarding this subject, please contact Monica Nepomuceno, Education Programs Consultant, School Health Office, by phone at 916-323-2212 or by email at
