Mental illness is a disorder that disrupts a person’s thinking, feelings, mood, ability to relate to others, and daily functioning. Mental health disorders are not the result of personal weakness, poor upbringing, or lack of character. “Ending the Silence”  -NAMI

The High School Wellness Connection Clubs are open to all students who are interested in making new friends, building connections, learning about and promoting healthy living and becoming a vibrant part of their campus! Our Student WC Ambassadors are at SMHS, DPHS, SBHS, CHS & Middle College.

WC Ambassadors create monthly wellness campaigns that are promoted on their campuses in collaboration with ASB leadership and other campus clubs. Their goal is to promote health and wellness and positive stress management while erasing the stigma around mental health.

The YWC is a high school leadership program of the Mental Wellness Center that educates, empowers and engages students. Students develop leadership tools, learn about current mental health issues and resources in our community. YWC serve as officers in the Wellness Connection Clubs at their high schools.

The high school Wellness Connection Clubs are modeled after and in partnership with the SBCC Wellness Connection ClubWe are sponsored and supported by the Mental Wellness Center.
