Thank you, Napa Valley Vintners!

In the beginning of June, the Napa Valley Vintners hosted Collective Napa Valley Together Again Weekend and raised $3.8 million for youth mental health in Napa Valley. As a collaborative partner of SHINE (Student Health Improvement through Nonprofit Excellence) we are grateful to the Napa Valley Vintners for supporting critically needed youth mental health services in our community. SHINE works to increase access to care and ensure that every student who needs support can get it for free in a space that feels safe to them. Our wonderful SHINE partners include Napa Valley Education Foundation, Aldea Children & Family Services, Mentis, and On the Move. Together, we provide essential services and support that help students live happy and healthy lives through these five impact strategies:

#1. Expand Access - Provide mental health access to students with a focus on rural and underserved communities.

#2. Raise Awareness - Use student voice to raise awareness around youth mental health needs and increase access to resources and services.

#3. Develop Safe Spaces - Continue development of wellness hubs where services can be accessed within schools, agencies, or on the go.

#4. Recover from Trauma - Provide training to educators and families to strengthen ability to recover from and respond to trauma.

#5. Maximize Impact - Systematically address the issue by collaborating under one umbrella to increase impact within our community.
