Dedicated to Improving Student Mental Health in California
SB21(Glazer) would require the Department of Education (CDE) to apply for a special interest license plate with the DMV. The monies raised by the sale of these plates goes to the CDE to equitably fund Wellness Centers and school mental health support for our children.
BeingwellCA's mission is to reduce anxiety, depression and suicide ideation in our youth. We do this by providing schools, parents, students and communities with workshops, tool kits and trainings to improve mental health support.
Our son Colin was a wonderful young man, son, brother and fierce friend who lost his battle with depression at age 15. He could calm a rambunctious Scout Troop with just his harmonica and cause hearts to soar with his French Horn. Colin is remembered for his kindness to children and hugs that took away all that was hurting. His humor and wisdom were beyond his years. We miss him so much. It is in his honor that BeingwellCA was formed to help others find the resources they need when the world is just too much.

Getting the word out is a continuing process, and a public awareness campaign takes time and money. Your generous financial support will enable us to promote the 4COLIN Mental Health Awareness License Plate campaign and support on-campus Wellness Centers in California.
