Wellness news for our families!

Our CHHS Wellness Center is a Resource Hub for our Canyon Hills students and families.  Ms. Dani will help provide and navigate any supports for your child &/ family. Our school community voice helps drive our wellness efforts. If you would to join these efforts- please reach out to us! 

We provide students with a safe & inclusive space on campus, facilitate clubs, life skills education workshops and pyscho-educational groups. We support our students with free behavioral health services, Medi-Cal Enrollment, Substance Use Prevention Groups and have a Military Family Life Counselor on campus. We connect students and families to resources within the district and community and support marginalized student populations. Our intention is to elevate student voice and needs, build self-agency, and give each and every student's well-being the opportunity to thrive.

Mending Matters LIFE Youth Advisory Board --> We Hear YOUth Survey Information

· Purpose of Survey: is for Mending Matters to learn how students view their student body’s mental health needs, so we can create responsive resources for CHHS students. 

· Survey is voluntary: if a parent/guardian wishes for their student to opt out of the survey, they can inform their student not to participate when it is presented to them in class. *** there is a notice on the first page of the survey indicating its voluntary nature. 

· Survey is anonymous: we do not collect personal information from students (i.e. name, ID, IP address, email address). We only report responses in aggregate (i.e. in a group, 75% of students said they want to learn more about stress management). 

· The survey will be disseminated the week of December 11-15, 2023 

· If parents/guardians want to know more about Mending Matters, they can access information at our website:


If a parent/guardian wants to review the survey: please contact Mr. Schmidt (Dean of Students) or Ms. Dani (Wellness Center) and they will coordinate with Mending Matters to email you a PDF version of our W.H.Y. survey. 

Below is the parent notification / passive consent letter for the upcoming survey in December 2023:
