What is the Wellness Center?
The Redwood Wellness Center works with the Counseling Department to expand existing support services for students. We help to coordinate and provide health, mental health, reproductive health, and substance abuse services and programs for Redwood students on campus. We offer both direct services as well as prevention and education for students including health and wellness classroom presentations and school wide health education events.

How do I refer a student to the Redwood Wellness Center?
Teachers/staff can refer a student by contacting the student's School Counselor. They will let you know if you should complete a Wellness Support Request form, which are located in the main attendance and counseling offices and are also available at http://www.tamdistrict.org/Page/8946.
Parents/guardians can refer students via their School Counselor, calling 415-945-3663, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
, or dropping by the Wellness Center to talk directly to staff there.
Students can refer themselves or a friend through their School Counselor or by coming directly to the Wellness Center and talking to staff there.
