The Teen Stress & Happiness Committee works to become aware of, acknowledge, and tackle issues that affect the mental, physical, emotional, and social well-being of youth and teens in San Mateo County.


Goals of the Subcommittee

  • Partner with organizations that promote youth well-being.
  • Remain aware of issues affecting youth in SMC
  • Foster a positive environment for youth in SMC.

  • Description

    Founded in the Spring of 2012, the TSH Committee works to address the well-being of youth in the County through happiness and the reduction of stress. This year, the Committee is working on amending the policies in school districts across San Mateo County to better address the issue of cyberbullying. The Committee is working in partnership with the County Office of Education, the County Counsel, and eventually, individual school districts. In addition to this endeavor, to lighten things up, the group has started a tumblr full of warm and fuzzy things to make you smile. Check it out here.
