Now more than ever, students and educators need our intentional and concerted efforts to improve wellbeing. Our students and staff do not live in a vacuum. As such, when we implement a school wellbeing program we should aim to teach skills that will not only help our students and staff thrive in the school environment, but outside of our schools and classrooms as well. We hope that by teaching social, emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing skills at school, students will thrive at home, in the community, with their peers, and long into adolescence and adulthood. While starting this journey can be a little scary, let’s take Teddy Roosevelt’s advice to, “Do what you can, with what you've got, where you are!” Thanks for your passion and desire to improve wellbeing in schools through positive interventions.
