ACBHCS Peer Educators

 

The Peer Educators program focuses on encouraging youth of color to explore behavioral health careers by training students in a range of mental and behavioral health issues at three Oakland high schools.

These young educators work to reduce stigma related to seeing and giving help for emotional and behavioral issues that their peers and community might be facing.

This program is currently in three Oakland schools:

Castlemont High School

Oakland High School

Oakland Technical School

Funding Source: Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services (ACBHCS)
