In the southern part of the County of Orange, California, there's a portion of land referred to as the saddleback valley. This lush area, only ten miles from the Pacific Ocean, is the location of a place called Laguna Woods. Around 90 % of the population in Laguna Woods is of retirement age, so one would expect nearly everything to be aimed at the senior demographic, which is only partially true. It turns out that this community has several passions, and schools are one of those passions. Here, in Laguna Woods, several school choices are available to students, from private-parochial to public. At the main museum in the area, the Laguna Art Museum, students---from elementary school age to teenagers---are encouraged to tour its exhibitions. Although the museum contains over 3500 works, ranging from the early nineteenth century to present day, Laguna Woods residents are especially proud of the impressionistic paintings of William Wendt (1865-1946).1 After Wendt moved to Laguna Woods, it seemed he couldn't get enough of painting its beautiful landscapes.

Mental Health in Laguna Woods

Many residents in Laguna Woods face barriers to achieving independence and self-sufficiency because of a disability. Individuals with serious and persistent mental illnesses are able to take advantage of training programs at the Goodwill of Orange County that provide the knowledge, skills, and resources to make independent living more likely. Work experience programs provide these tools, while continuous vocational assessments and job coaching ensure that individuals in the program meet their job-related goals. Peer support and counseling services address the mental health needs of program participants as well. Additional details about these services are available by calling 714-796-0266.2

Laguna Woods residents who struggle with substance use can find help and support through the Orange County chapter of Narcotics Anonymous (NA). NA is a community-based organization that uses peer support to help individuals live a drug-free life. NA holds meetings throughout the county, and all who have struggled or continue to struggle with substance use are welcome to attend. All meetings are free. Call 714-590-2388 to get more information about meetings in Orange County.3

Current Initiatives

Orange County is home to nearly 140,000 veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces.4 Soldiers returning from service often face many challenges as they transition back to civilian life, not the least of which are mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and posttraumatic stress disorder. To help returning veterans acquire the tools and services they need to overcome these challenges, the Orange County Community Foundation began the Orange County Veteran Services Initiative. As part of the program, veterans can access resources regarding transition to civilian life, education, financial assistance, and mental health care. To inquire about the initiative, call 949-553-4202.5
