The NH Student Wellness Toolkit
The NH Student Wellness Toolkit is your premier resource for considering, starting, or improving a Student Wellness program in your school, district, and community. Use of this toolkit is completely customizable, however, we encourage you to begin by exploring each of the modules below. They will provide important foundational information meant to help guide you through each phase of development and act as a guide in the development of your team of partners, the collection of needed data, and the development of a strategy. Should you have any questions about the toolkit, please contact us!
Ensure leadership team buy-in.
It is important that each participating school's Leadership Team adopts MTSS-B as a part of its mission and develops a work plan that includes goals, objectives, and resources to be allocated to objectives and activities. This plan must be updated annually. Learn how in this phase!
Develop or strengthen tiered teams.
Implementation teams focusing on the needs of students at the universal, tier 2, and tier 3 levels are integral to the success of any student wellness initiative. In this step, you will explore ways to develop or strengthen your schools teams.
Receive ongoing MTSS-B training or coaching.
We all need a little support. Schools implementing MTSS-B are no different. Consistent and reliable training and coaching create focus and determination in the face of competing priorities.
Work with community mental health providers.
Inclusion of community mental health providers improves implementation of behavioral health practices within the school setting and supports positive outcomes for all students.
Review your policies.
As you build your Multi-Tiered System of Support for Behavioral Health and Wellness it is important that you evaluate and review both school and district policies to ensure they are keeping up!
Hear from families and youth.
Two-way communication that solicits and incorporates family and youth perspectives into the design, implementation, and assessment of MTSS-B is essential for success and sustainability.
