Healthy Transitions provides curriculum for young adults transitioning out of foster care to empower them to recognize how stress, anxiety and past traumas impact their daily lives, and how identifying and managing these factors can increase their success in life.
The Healthy Transitions curriculum and training activities focus on increasing awareness and disseminating information about the many facets of wellness and self-care, with the goal of instilling these students with healthy habits, connecting them to local resources and services, and empowering them to reach a higher state of health and well-being. Through a combination of training and peer-to-peer support, Healthy Transitions serves to support these young people physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. The Healthy Transitions Curriculum includes youth workbooks, supplemental workbooks, and student resource guide. The trainer program components include a training guide, presenter slides, supplemental slides, peer to peer support group manual, and coordinator resource tools.
The Healthy Transitions is funded by the voter-approved Mental Health Services Act (Prop. 63) and is a partnership between the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office and the Foundation for California Community Colleges.
