Northern Health School Health programs and services focus on helping children and youth achieve optimum health and well-being.
It is well known that health and education are related - good health contributes to successful learning in students!
Northern Health supports the Comprehensive School Health Framework which is an approach that includes a variety of activities and services that take place in schools and surrounding communities. A comprehensive school health approach helps children and youth achieve optimum physical, social, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
At Northern Health, we want to help create a healthy school community for children, school staff and parents!
