Wellness center

Elizabeth Garrett, a Sonora Union High School District counselor, introduces guest speakers from Machiesen Health Clinic during substance abuse prevention month in October. Students who attended signed up to hear the speakers.

A $200,000 grant received by Sonora Union High School District in December will help fund mental health services at Tuolumne County's first wellness center for students, which opened in August.

The center was developed after the district’s board and local stakeholders determined at a meeting in April that students’ mental health will be the district’s top priority moving forward.
