Anna Yates Wellness is centered around our vision to foster the physical, mental, and social health of students, staff, and families. Wellness Program supports students' social, emotional, and behavioral needs using a School Based Behavioral Health model. Wellness staff at Anna Yates include: the school spychologist, school nurse, counselors from our Medi-Cal partner A Better Way Agency, and Wellness interns. We provide interventions for students at different levels, depending on their unique needs. These include support with positive behavior interventions in the classroom, support with implementing social-emotional learning programs such as Second Step and Peacemakers, teacher and parent consultation, and direct services such as individual and small group counseling. Support for healthy living including healthy nutrition and physical fitness is also a part of our comprehensive Wellness program. We also provide resources and referrals in collaboration with the Emery Unified School District's Family Resource Center (FRC). Students who receive services are monitored through the Coordination of Services Team (COST), a multi-disciplinary student support team.
