A True Collaborative Effort
The Whole Health for Youth Initiative is a coalition of community organizations focused on addressing youth mental health issues in and around Redwood City. By collaborating, they make their services more effective and accessible for underserved and marginalized families in our community.
To support the “whole health” of youth, the initiative offers prevention programs, mental health training and early intervention services to young people (ages 11-24), parents, schools, mentors and program staff.
Whole Health for Youth Initiative launched in August 2018 with the support of the Sand Hill Foundation.
Friends for Youth manages the coalition’s joint efforts and offers mentoring services to families from each organization.
Based in North Fair Oaks, Siena Youth Center offers programs that support education, art, advocacy, health and wellness.
