2022 every one

Let’s co-create a culture of community care for every one.

What is every one?

 every one is a community care effort to support mental health and harassment prevention at the festival.

Our Part

  • Our every one space on festival grounds is a place we invite you to rest, recharge, and take care of yourself during festival hours.
  • Our enclosed every one tent will be staffed with trained counselors for anyone that needs extra support or a quiet moment away.
  • Our trained every one field team will be deployed throughout the festival grounds to facilitate access to care services for anyone in distress.
  • The every one logo signifies places with program information or people trained in awareness and appropriate response

Your Part

  • Hold each other accountable.
  • Be an upstander, not a bystander.
  • Practice active consent.
  • Know where your nearest wellness services are: every one space, medical, and hydration stations.
  • Be respectful of people's identities, cultures, and cultural practices.
  • Enjoy yourself responsibly and take care of each other.
  • Remember every one deserves to feel safe.

Pre-Festival Wellness Toolkit

These are some things to keep in mind and pack as you get ready for Coachella.

Make a contingency plan:

  • Phone tip: Share location with everyone in your group.
  • Predetermine a place to meet up that’s clear, specific, and easy to find. Example: Spectre or a specific info kiosk.
  • Be aware of your physical, mental, emotional needs and take care of them regularly.

Check your medication needs:

  • Read through the safety information and be aware of any possible interactions.
  • Pack enough for your entire stay and bring your prescription with you.

Do a mental health check-in with your group:

  • Share with each other how to identify signs that people might be in need of support.
  • Check-in on a regular basis and be honest about how you each feel.

Bring a refillable plastic water bottle (no glass, metal aluminum or steel containers allowed) and a nice smelling lotion that reminds you of a calm moment (lavender, eucalyptus).

Prepare for the elements:

  • Sun
  • Heat
  • Wind
  • Dust and pollen
  • Cold

Pack a first-aid kit. You never know what you might need.

Tips For How To Stay Well During the Festival

  • Drink WATER
  • Take regular breaks and REST
  • EAT
  • Write down your group’s phone numbers in case you lose your phone or get lost
  • Note and locate the wellness area icons
    • Medics: physical ailment
    • every one space: mental health support
    • Info kiosks: general questions and information
    • Water hydration station: refill your bottle throughout the day
  • Check in with your group regularly, including how each of you feels
    • It’s ok to not feel ok, even in the most fun places. You are not alone!
    • Seek help at the every one space if you need mental health support or a quiet moment away

Grounding and Breathing Techniques

  • Categories: The idea is to think of objects or words that fit into the different categories. Here are some options:
    • Think of 5 things that start with the letter A, then with the letter B and continue with each letter of the alphabet.
    • Find all the green things around you. Then pick another color like yellow or pink and repeat the exercise with as many colors as you need.
  • Breathing in Fives.
    • Inhale as slowly and deeply as you can for five seconds. Visualize your body getting lighter as the air fills your lungs and belly. Hold the air in for five seconds.
    • Release it slowly through your mouth or nose for five seconds. Notice your body progressively relaxing. Repeat three times.
  • Ways to return focus to your body
    • Sit down. Focus on the feeling of the ground beneath you. Stretch your arms and legs for five seconds. Repeat.
    • If you are standing up, focus on the sensation of your feet on the ground. Identify if there is tension on your shoulders, hands or jaw, and while breathing, focus on relaxing them and correcting your posture.
    • Close your hand in a fist and press as hard as you can for three seconds. Let go and focus on the sensation. Repeat this three times. Visualize the tension leaving your body. Remember to breathe.
  • Focus on an affirmation: “I am here. I will enjoy the little things.” “This moment is all that exists right now.” “I am present” “I give myself permission to enjoy this moment”.
