The Public Health Agency of Canada outlines it's Comprehensive School Health
approach:

Quote:
Comprehensive School Health (CSH) is an integrated approach to health promotion that gives students numerous opportunities to observe and learn positive health attitudes and behaviours. It aims to reinforce health consistently on many levels and in many ways.

CSH views health as a resource for daily living. It recognizes that many different factors affect the health and well-being of students, including the physical condition of the home, school and community; the availability and quality of health services; economic and social conditions; and the quality and impact of health promotion. CSH encourages and depends on active partnership between everyone who can and should contribute to the well-being of students, including teachers, parents, peers, health professionals and the community.

The CSH approach promotes health within and beyond the classroom, encouraging values, skills and actions that foster the healthy development of students.

3.Psycho-social Environment

The psycho-social environment refers to the psychological and social support available within the school and in relation to the home and community. This support can be informal (friends, peers, and teachers) or formal (school policies, rules, clubs or support groups). This component also takes into account how the school operates and what policies are in place. The psycho-social environment can help students grow into active contributing members of society if they are treated with respect and encouraged to participate. Positive health role models, peer support, a positive school climate, family support, and appropriate public policy all contribute to a healthy psycho-social environment.
