The Knowledge Guide introduces you to Comprehensive School Health, the healthy schools approach adopted by the provincial Healthy Families BC initiative.  Many different groups have an interest in creating healthy schools.  Whether you work as a teacher, a principal, or a health professional, the Knowledge Guide supports members of the school community to understand what has become an internationally recognized approach to health that has been demonstrated to improve students’ health and academic success.

After reading the Knowledge Guide you’ll better understand the concepts of the CSH approach, learn about countries around the world who are using the approach with success, and be introduced to evidence that supports the link between health and learning.

Learn how this evidence based, internationally accepted framework can make a difference in your classroom, your school, and for your students.
