The City of Sacramento has partnered with Crushing The Curve, an online resource and campaign designed to educate young people about mental and physical health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
What began as a Bay Area-resource, Crushing The Curve now includes information specific to Sacramento youth, including crisis help, health and relationships. Youth can access the project’s website and social media posts, which provide helpful articles on topics such as physical health, stress management and dealing with social issues specific to COVID-19.
“It is a priority for the City to make sure youth have the information and support they need to stay healthy and safe during COVID-19,” said Lindee Lane, youth development policy manager for the City. “Through Crushing The Curve, Sacramento youth have the opportunity to contribute their unique experiences and voice to this youth-led campaign, while hearing from public health experts.”
Crushing The Curve was developed by the Chan-Zuckerberg Institute, Centers for Disease Control Foundation and several government jurisdictions from the Bay Area, including the City of San Francisco.
The City of Sacramento supports youth through a citywide “youth development campaign plan,” a document that guides the City in the design, operations and evaluation of its children and youth programs.
