Wellness Centers

The SDUSD Wellness Centers are located on the campuses of Morse, San Diego, and Serra High Schools. Each Center is open to all high school students attending that respective school site.  

Each Wellness Center is staffed by a Wellness Center Coordinator who provides a safe, inclusive, non-judgmental space for students to ask questions, get support, connect to community resources and learn new skills for their well-being.  Wellness Center Coordinators increase student awareness of and access to student support services, promote self agency, and bridge services in collaboration with Community Partners & SDUSD services. These include physical and emotional health resources, as well as referrals to community agencies supporting students. Wellness Center Coordinators also offer students Life Skills Educational materials and programming, through a variety of avenues. Wellness Center Coordinators are active members of the District Wellness Council, School Site Wellness Committees, and integrated within the school culture.
