Schools + Parents
Parent Engagement

Healthy habits begin at home, so Beach Cities Health District (BCHD) provides a range of ways for parents to stay abreast of health trends, emerging programming and research.


BCHD’s Youth Services newsletter provides parents with an update on all lessons being taught through the LiveWell Kids program, as well as healthy recipes and activities to try at home.

Read ways to keep your family healthy, active and connected on BCHD’s LiveWell Blog. Topics range from exploring the life-extending principles of Blue Zones Project to healthy cooking tips and recipes.

Talk About It

The more we talk about it, the more mental health becomes normal. We need to talk about mental health with the same sensitivity, care and importance as physical health. It’s up to us to remove the stigma.
