Adolescence is a time of significant physical, mental, and emotional growth and development. It is also a time when teens are increasingly independent and making more choices about their own health. Schools play a critical role in supporting the health and well-being of teens by providing a safe and healthy environment, offering health education and services, and promoting healthy behaviors.

This comprehensive guide provides evidence-based strategies and best practices for creating a healthy school environment that supports the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of teens. The guide is divided into four sections:

  1. School Health Policies and Programs: This section provides guidance on developing and implementing school health policies and programs that promote healthy eating, physical activity, and mental health.
  2. School Nutrition: This section provides guidance on creating a healthy school food environment that supports healthy eating habits.
  3. Physical Activity: This section provides guidance on promoting physical activity and creating a physically active school environment.
  4. Mental Health and Emotional Well-being: This section provides guidance on promoting mental health and emotional well-being and creating a supportive school environment for teens.

The guide is intended to be a resource for school administrators, teachers, health professionals, parents, and community members who are working to create a healthier school environment for teens. The guide can be used to develop and implement school health policies and programs, create a healthy school food environment, promote physical activity, and promote mental health and emotional well-being.

School Health Policies and Programs

School health policies and programs are essential for creating a healthy school environment. These policies and programs should be based on evidence-based practices and should be tailored to the specific needs of the school community.

Some key components of a comprehensive school health policy include:

  • A statement of the school's commitment to the health and well-being of its students
  • Goals and objectives for improving the health of students
  • Strategies and activities for achieving the goals and objectives
  • A plan for evaluating the effectiveness of the policy

School health programs should be designed to address the specific health needs of teens. Some common components of school health programs include:

  • Health education
  • School health services
  • Physical activity programs
  • Mental health and emotional well-being programs

School health policies and programs should be developed and implemented with the involvement of students, parents, and community members. This will help to ensure that the policies and programs are responsive to the needs of the school community.

School Nutrition

A healthy school food environment is essential for supporting healthy eating habits. Schools should provide students with access to nutritious and affordable foods. This includes offering a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.

Schools should also limit the availability of unhealthy foods, such as sugary drinks, processed foods, and fried foods. These foods are high in calories, fat, and sugar, and they can contribute to weight gain and other health problems.

In addition to providing healthy food options, schools should also promote healthy eating habits. This can be done through nutrition education, cooking classes, and other activities that teach students about healthy eating.

Physical Activity

Physical activity is essential for the physical, mental, and emotional health of teens. Schools should provide students with opportunities to be physically active throughout the day.

Some ways to promote physical activity in schools include:

  • Offering physical education classes
  • Providing opportunities for students to participate in extracurricular activities, such as sports and clubs
  • Creating a physically active school environment, such as by providing walking trails and playground equipment
  • Encouraging students to walk or bike to school

Physical activity can help teens to improve their cardiovascular health, muscular strength, and flexibility. It can also help to reduce their risk of obesity and other chronic diseases.

Mental Health and Emotional Well-being

Mental health and emotional well-being are just as important as physical health. Schools should create a supportive environment that promotes mental health and emotional well-being.

Some ways to promote mental health and emotional well-being in schools include:

  • Providing mental health education and services
  • Creating a safe and supportive school environment
  • Promoting positive relationships between students and staff
  • Encouraging students to seek help when they are struggling

Mental health and emotional well-being can help teens to succeed in school and in life. It can also help them to cope with stress and adversity.

Creating a healthy school environment is essential for the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of teens. Schools should implement evidence-based strategies and best practices to create a healthy school environment that supports the health and well-being of all students.
