Dedicated to Improving Student Mental Health in California
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.
Create school environments that support positive mental health, raise awareness and reduce the alarming rates of stress, anxiety, depression and suicide ideation in our youth.
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.

The California Department of Education is processing the application for the Mental Health Awareness License Plate to the DMV. Please join us in supporting the movement to bring Mental Health into the Light, even if just a traffic light. All monies raised will go to supporting youth mental health in our schools.
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.
