Mental Wellness Initatives
UDEF is committed to supporting our students' mental wellness. In 2021, we funded initiatives like the MindUP curriculum for our elementary school students which teaches skills that help regulate stress and emotions, form positive relationships and act with kindness and compassion.
In addition, we teamed with the District and the organization "Be a Part of the Conversation" to present an impactful 3-part virtual parent/guardian education series through the organization, "Be A Part of the Conversation." Sessions included:"The Search for Identity;" "Kids & the Tech/Life Balance" and "Isolation: the New Drug of Choice."
