2019, the County of Los Angeles, including the Board
of Supervisors, the Departments of Public Health and Mental Health, Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Office of Education, and the Los Angeles Unified School District announced a groundbreaking effort to address the social, emotional, and sexual health needs of young people throughout Los Angeles County.
The coalition of partners announced the opening of Student Wellbeing Centers at dozens of LA County high schools to create a safe space on school campuses where students can receive health-affirming services and support they need to lead healthy lives.
The Centers offer services to educate students for lifelong protective practices and promote social/emotional well-being, youth leadership, and sexual health. These spaces are youth-friendly and provide students with a safe, welcoming place where they will find caring adults, supportive peers, and integrated services.
