How does HealthSmart fit into a Coordinated School Health Program (CSHP)?

The HealthSmart program provides a comprehensive curriculum to provide Health Education, one of the essential components of a Coordinated School Health Program.

The effectiveness of school health education is enhanced when it is implemented as part of a larger school health program and when health education outcomes are reinforced by the other 7 components in the CSHP model. HealthSmart lessons offer opportunities to involve other components of the CSHP, particularly those activities that engage students as health advocates and allow them to share their learning with the wider school community.
