The California Children’s Trust is committed to working together to reinvent our state’s approach to children’s social, emotional, and developmental health. An initiative to achieve health equity and healthy development for California’s children, youth, and families.

Here are a list of resources created by California Children’s Trust:


CRAFFT (Car, Remember, Alone, Friends/ Family, Forget, Trouble)

The CRAFFT is an efficient and effective health screening tool designed to identify substance use, substance-related riding/driving risk, and substance use disorder among youth ages 12-21. It has been implemented as part of universal screening efforts in thousands of busy medical and community health settings, as it yields information that can serve as the basis for early intervention and patient-centered counseling.


Narcan (Naloxene) Medication

Free ​​​Naloxone for Schools

The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) created the Naloxone Distribution Project (NDP) to combat opioid overdose-related deaths throughout California. Naloxone is a life-saving medication that reverses an opioid overdose. There are two Ways to Access Naloxone for Opioid Overdose Prevention. California public schools can also request four free doses of NARCAN nasal spray through the Emergent BioSolutions Free Goods Program.
