Parent and Community Education Share +

Our Parent and Community Education initiative is designed to equip and encourage the entire community-- and especially Coronado’s parents -- with the skills and tools to raise emotionally and socially healthy youth through in-person instructional events, training workshops, subject-matter expert panels, online resources, and more.  At Coronado SAFE we strive to create environments and dialogues that decrease the stigmas associated with mental health, and support a sense of belonging, positive well being, and assured safety for every member of the Coronado community. Because we are passionate about supporting parents and the whole community, all of the evidence-based resources are intended to be practical and easily actionable for each family’s household structure and unique situation.

Aloha Welcoming Committee

The Aloha Welcoming Committee is a program in collaboration with the Coronado Public and Private Schools and the Naval Base Coronado School Liaison Program designed to welcome new families as they transition into Coronado.  The committee gets connected to new families through orientations and back to school events. These families are then contacted by Coronado SAFE volunteers who provide a welcome basket that includes important resources for new residents. 

QPR Training

Similar to learning the skill of CPR, people trained in QPR can help save lives by preventing suicide.  These training programs, offered at least once a year, teach parents and community members of Coronado to recognize the warning signs and ensure they are prepared to support those who turn to them as “trusted adults” through the Question, Persuade, and Refer approach.
