How We Work

Our mission is to positively impact the trajectory of young peoples’ mental health & well-being. We do this by giving organizations and innovations projects “room to breathe” so that they can equip Bay Area youth and the adults who support them with the knowledge and practices to grow their mental health & well-being.

Our Partners & Programming

R2B developed the Room to Be Well (R2BeWell) program to bring greater well-being to the adults across school campuses. This year we are partnered with 11 San Francisco schools to provide a stipend for each staff member on campus to use toward a well-being practice of their choice. Participants were encouraged to engage through monthly email check-ins.

R2B is honored to announce our partnership with Health Career Connection for their summer internship program. Our support helped fund four interns at three CA-based organizations, each with a focus on mental and behavioral health. The interns worked to grow youth mental health services both in and out of schools, as well as to research and develop programs for transitional youth and underserved communities. This collaboration underscores our commitment to nurturing the next generation of diverse mental health professionals and to strengthening a foundation of comprehensive and consistent mental health support for youth.

R2B partnered with Seneca to fund the Unconditional Education (UE) Coach role at three San Francisco schools. UE coaches work directly within the school for 3-5 years with the goal of building a climate of unconditional care, including social, emotional, and behavioral supports for every child at the school.


R2B partnered with Greater Good in Education at UC Berkeley in the design, piloting, and measurement of their Community of Practices for their asynchronous online courses in educator and student well-being. This opportunity for educators allows them to deepen their understanding and practice of several well-being strategies by virtually connecting with other educators from all over and sharing ideas and experiences. This partnership highlights our belief that educators not only need resources but support in their own well-being journeys.

R2B partnered with Peer Health Exchange (PHE) to help produce an online mental health course for 9th grade students during the pandemic, as well as build a digital community (selfsea) that offers a safe space for young people to discuss and share knowledge on identity, mental health, and sexual health.

R2B partnered with The Primary School to pilot their Bridge to Preschool (BtP) program in the Bayview community of San Francisco. The BtP program spanned 12 weeks and consisted of 6 weeks of virtual parent support groups and 6 weeks of in-person playgroups for 20 Bayview families. The Primary School is now building on this effort and working to expand the BtP program.


R2B partnered with Millennium School to support Forum. Forum is a practice of educator well-being where participants work on their social, emotional, and mental health together with a small group of other educators in monthly online circles facilitated by a trained guide. R2B supported 150 educators from SFUSD to participate in this experience during a pandemic year.
