Playing the Game: Energize your Emergency Drills!

Emergency drills can be energizing, empowering and fun. Yes….FUN! They don’t always have to look like emergency drills and the students don’t need to know that they are practicing for an emergency! Both students and adults learn through play and games. Come learn both traditional and non-traditional ways to teach students and staff to respond to emergencies. This will be an interactive workshop, loaded with great ideas for energizing your school emergency procedures.

You and App – New World, New You!

The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted the lives of all Orange County school-aged children. The outbreak has abruptly changed their routine and for the most part has affected their mental health. Children, as young as kindergarten, are experiencing new sets of challenging emotions. Youth are now faced with concerns of family members falling ill, impaired learning, missing out on major milestones, social isolation, and a general lack of motivation.

As direct result of this, BHIS was granted the opportunity by the Orange County Health Care Agency (OCHCA), Behavioral Health Services, Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to develop a mobile application that takes a holistic approach to social-emotional health and wellness. Orange County youth in grades K-12th will receive a 6-lesson curriculum series that aligns with the 5 social-emotional learning competencies. The curriculum has been validated and peer-reviewed by team of researchers at the University of California, Irvine. The you andapplication aims to increase resiliency and provide youth with a sense of support and community during social isolation.

Giovanna, Daniel and Christina will show participants how to register for a you and account and present a grade specific lesson to familiarize teachers and school staff with the curriculum and material.
