Mental Health Promotion in Schools
Healthy Schools is rooted in comprehensive school health (CSH) which is an internationally recognized framework for supporting improvements in students’ educational outcomes, while addressing school health in a planned, integrated and holistic way. CSH helps educators, health practitioners, school staff, students, and others work together to create an environment that makes their school the best place possible to learn, work, and play.
CSH is not limited to the classroom – it addresses the whole school environment with actions in four interrelated pillars that provide a strong foundation for healthy schools:
- social and physical environment
- teaching and learning
- partnerships and services
- healthy school policy
