Each year, the Sequoia Healthcare District’s Healthy School Initiative helps to support school-based health programs to over 28,000 students across 8 school districts in San Mateo County, ours included. The program funds over 60-staff, including wellness coordinators, school nurses, and counselors. Additionally, the initiative trains school staff in supporting students' emotional health.
