• Petaluma High School is committed to supporting all students and their needs while providing a safe and effective learning environment.

    In an effort to empower our school community, we have developed this Social Wellness Hub for students to access a variety of social wellness resources without the direct involvement of PHS staff or Parents/Guardians.  We hope the information on this webpage becomes a useful resource for the those who need the support.  

    With guidance from students we have determined 3 areas of focus for support: 

    Connections: This section is designed with the intention of helping student stay connected with friends, teachers and school staff. We have also included tools and resources to help with organization and technology with school related topics. 

    School Resources: The school resources section was created with the intention of providing several self guided resources for student to use as a way to get help or self discover. 

    Crisis Resources: Our goal is to provide resources to support a wide variety of social and mental wellness needs. These resources are avaialble for all who are experiencing a moment of crisis and or thoughts of suicide.

    If you or someone you know struggles with the problems of alcoholism, then you know how difficult it may be to find a way to cope on your own. Alateen, part of the Al-Anon Family Groups, is a fellowship of young people whose lives have been affected by alcoholism in a family member of close friend. We help each other by sharing our experience, strength and hope.
