Young Minds Kings County

Who We Are

Young Minds Kings County is a dynamic mental health prevention project of the California Health Collaborative, funded by Kings County Behavioral Health. Young Minds is designed to equip youth in grades (TK-12) with practical tools and self-regulation strategies to decrease stress and anxiety while boosting school performance. Since January 2022, Young Minds has been serving students and communities across Kings County with direct school-based services and family focused community events.

Through the implementation of evidence-based curricula and promising practice designed to support social-emotional development, coping skills, and mindfulness, Young Minds aims to achieve these key goals:

  • Reduce stress and anxiety among students
  • Decrease risk for school failure
  • Boost emotional self-regulation skills
  • Reduce the stigma associated with mental illness
  • Increase access to mental health services and supports
