>> this is the "abc7 spotlight," sponsored by calhope. ♪ >> the pandemic actually elevated the opportunity to talk about mental health and mental wellness. it's not to say that mental-health issues weren't present before because they definitely were. suicide deaths among young adults ages 10 to 24 was the second-leading cause of death before the pandemic. it was definitely an issue, but the pandemic gave us that opportunity to really highlight what the needs are and to finally get some money poured into mental-health and school-based services. >> there's always someone smarter than you, who has a better gpa, who has better test scores. there's always someone who's
9:56 am
prettier than you. there's someone who's more charismatic. there's always someone better. >> we are normalizing conversations, and we are sharing stories. and, you know, before, it used to be taboo, and especially in certain cultures. you know, i'm from the latino community -- i'm mexican -- and we didn't talk about anxiety. we didn't talk about depression. we didn't talk about suicidal ideation. and those things happen. and so as we are seeing other people share, then we're like, "okay, i have a story, too. i've felt like that. and i can't believe that there are other people that felt like that." but there's definitely, you know, still stigma around mental health because there's always this notion of, "if you're strong enough, you can get through it." and it has nothing to do with strength. it has to do with all the different supports that are available to you. ♪ calhope is administered by the department of health care services here in our state.

it's a student support program that's helping schools and students across the state to provide more supportive environments for students by training school staff to be able to identify and support students that are in need. it's a desperately needed support system, and through this calhope, we're able to offer two free programs right now that are able to help not only students but also educators and other staff or other adults that support students. and one of them is angst: building resilience. and that particular program is a film-based program that is accompanied by a curriculum that can be deployed and implemented in the classroom. and it's really targeted to support students that are feeling stress and anxiety, not only from covid, but just life in general. and it's available at no cost to all public middle and high schools, including public
9:58 am
charter schools throughout the state. and then there's a trusted space, which is targeted to school staff. >> and we talked about that -- like, well, what can we do? what are the options? >> we don't -- there is no procedure for a global pandemic. >> viruses, riots, anger, hate, everything that's out there -- there's so much that kids can get lost in. >> a groundbreaking documentary and curriculum to provide educators and all those adults that serve students with skills to help develop trusting relationships with all students. educators don't have to be the healers. they just simply need to create these safe spaces for students to be able to openly talk about what they're experiencing and to get that support. and students can unpack their feelings about covid, about life, about everything that's going on. and they're not gonna be judged.

you are not alone in experiencing these symptoms, and you're not alone in addressing them. these programs are meant to be seen in community, in a classroom, in a community center for parents or staff during a staff meeting. they're not meant to be viewed alone because they are meant to really strike up a dialogue and, again, help to normalize that conversation around mental health and wellness. what can be expected when you implement the program is that you can either -- students will view this in a classroom, and then the teachers are able to implement the curriculum, which is, like, talking points and points of dialogue, just different resources and supports in that curriculum. if you want to bring these programs to your school, please visit calhope.org. ♪
