De La Salle’s Chris Miller, Ed.D. Named Mental Health Champion by the Steinberg Institute

De La Salle High School Religious Studies teacher, Chris Miller, Ed.D. was recently announced as the first 2022 Mental Health Champion by the Steinberg Institute. Thanks to Dr. Miller’s tireless efforts, students across the state will receive mental health education as part of required curriculum.

"I am humbled to have been selected as one of only four statewide mental health champions through the Steinberg Institute for 2022,” said Miller. “Much work has been accomplished in the area of mental health education and advocacy across the state of California and I am honored to have been a part of the work. At the same time, there is still a lot more to be done and I am excited to continue to advocate for the mental well-being of our young people. I appreciate the support of the De La Salle community and encourage all to get involved with mental health efforts."

This year the Steinberg Institute is partnering with Sacramento-based Mission Minded Media to share the stories of each of our four champions. Tuesdays this month on our website we’ll publish videos and stories highlighting their work and personal journey that led them to have an outsized impact on mental health for their fellow Californians. 

“A crucial part of our mission is to inspire leadership,” said Steinberg Institute CEO Karen Larsen. “Our Mental Health Champions are clear examples of demonstrated leadership in many areas of mental health. From providing life-saving crisis care to ensuring that California’s youth learn about the importance of mental health, our 2022 champions are truly inspiring.”
