A Note from Your Wellbeing Center


Hello to all!


We want to say hello and let you know we are still here for you, even though we can’t be there with you. 


This isolation and uncertainty are hard on everyone and even tougher on some. Remember that we are all in this together and are depending on one another to do what we can to stay safe and get through this as quickly as possible.


Please remember that if you need help, the WBC/PPLA Call line is up and running – every evening. You can call them at 844-810-0062 and a therapist is available.


We want to share a few ideas for making the most of this time…


Routine – create a routine for yourself with some things you do everyday that are good for you and keep you grounded.


Get some fresh air-

Get outside everyday even if it’s just an hour – Walk, ride a bike, jog, skateboard. As long as you stay 6 feet from others, you can enjoy our amazing LA sunshine. 


Keep a notebook/journal-

This is a historic time. Write about what’s going on – what you’re feeling – try for ½ page every day. It will be great to look back at how you lived during this time in history – What you did, what you felt, the conversations you had, what you read, drew, listened to, etc.


Read something you always wanted to but didn’t have the time to commit, or write down that song that you’ve been piecing together in your head.




Evening note – End your day each night by taking five minutes to write in your notebook, 2 things you’re grateful for and 1 thing you did well today.   


We will get through this and have our world back soon. In the meantime, stay safe by following the guidelines set out by our Department of Public Health and help those you love do the same.

The Wellbeing Center has arrived at Alexander Hamilton!

As some of you may have seen, a Wellbeing Center has opened its doors at Hamilton! The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has partnered with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health and Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles to make preventative health care accessible to students on their campuses throughout LA County. The Center at Hamilton is in room 810 (the old photography room).

What is the Center about?

The Center was created with students in mind. It is a nonjudgmental, confidential, safe, warm and welcoming place to drop by, relax, ask health-related questions (and receive medically accurate answers) and simply be free to be. Every Hamilton student is welcome!

The Center is closed on Monday and Thursday morning. Can’t make it these days? No problem, the Center has an after-hour call line for support and referral.

The team at the Center will also be assisting health teachers with the delivery of the health curriculum for the Spring Semester. Some of the topics that will be discussed include: how to identify toxic relationships, unhealthy communication styles, what consent means, and how to establish consent, how pregnancy happens, how to prevent STI, anatomy, and how to deal with peer pressure regarding substance use.

Other resources provided at the Center include mental health support (individual and in group setting) and being referred to mental health services, substance use prevention, education, STI testing (on Tuesday and Friday), and condoms.

Finally, the Center is offering a Peer Advocate Program which will coach students to become health advocates for their peers! Applications are available at the Center. Come and get yours!

Any questions? Stop by the Center and meet the Health Educators! The Center is excited to be of service for Hamilton students and offer them lifelong protective and empowering health practices!
