Uplift Ideate Festival

Nicolette Peji and educator Dana Dale opened the conversation around mental health and wellness with the student population at Ideate High School in San Diego. Their goal is for students to focus on their own self-care and identifying healthy ways to process and manage stress. With various, diverse events throughout the month of May, the duo plans to create an ongoing conversation around different aspects of mental health. Ideate is a newer charter high school and Nicolette is part of their first graduating class, so their goal is to imprint school culture as it is still forming and norming. Due to COVID-19, the duo are reassessing new mental health needs and are formulating a new plan to respond to those needs.
