The Importance of Health and Wellness in Schools Video

This video shares the importance of addressing health and wellness in schools. We know that to create healthy and engaging learning environments, we need to give kids what they really need to succeed. We need to work for a systemic, strategic, and coordinated approach to supporting the whole child, which includes social, emotional, nutritional, physical, and safety wellness.

No matter how good the teaching, how interesting the curriculum, or how beautiful the school, students will not achieve unless they are healthy, feel safe, and have the skills to handle whatever may be going on in their lives.
