American Psychological Association

The American Psychological Association’s Mental Health Primers, developed by the Coalition for Psychology in Schools and Education, provides information for classroom teachers to help them identify behaviors in the classroom that are symptomatic of mental health and other psychological issues, with the goal of directing teachers to appropriate resources for the students. The intent is not for teachers themselves to treat students, but for teachers to recognize behaviors and provide tangible resources for the students as needed. Learn more.

CDC's Office on Smoking and Health Exhibitors

Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable disease, disability, and death in the United States, mainly in the form of cigarettes and other combustible products. As of 2019, about 34 million US adults smoke cigarettes. Every day, about 1,600 young people under age 18 try their first cigarette, and nearly 200 become daily cigarette smokers. Over 16 million people live with at least one disease caused by smoking, and 58 million nonsmoking Americans are exposed to secondhand smoke. Smoking-related illness costs society over $300 billion each year, including $170 billion in direct medical costs. Costs could be reduced if we prevent young people from starting to smoke and help people who smoke to quit. Learn more.

One on Campus

ONE-ON-CAMPUS is an Award Winning501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the inspiration of young people founded in 2015. Our flagship campuses are in the Newport Mesa Unified School District and thriving.

The need long existed for a campus-based program of connection. Where a student did not need to identify by a diagnosis, issue or specific skill to gain entry. A space where solution was present before the problems of adolescence could become rooted. A room for those in present struggle and those with none. A space that becomes a microcosm of the culture, the campus and the community. Where ONE realizes their strength may be the lifeline to another’s perceived weakness. Learn more.
