Elements of Student Health Support

Healthy students — that is, students who are physically, mentally and behaviorally well — are more likely to attend school and engage in learning. Schools support student well-being by providing safe environments and health services, in addition to education that expands students’ awareness of healthful practices. This new resource explores six ways in which schools support student health, and the ways in which state policy can create conditions for this support.

This project has been made possible, in part, by a grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative DAF, an advised fund of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
