The prevention of behavioral health problems (including substance use) is key to the success of every student. Broad environmental strategies that address change not only at the individual, classroom, and school levels, but also at the family and community levels must be the cornerstone of any approach to student wellness.
The Office of Student Wellness is committed to the following:
Developing a clear understanding of the risk factors facing all of NH's youth
Supporting evidence based prevention strategies in all schools
Strengthening protective factors that encourage healthy decision making
