Healthy Schools BC

About this initiative

Healthy Schools BC

Healthy Schools BC (HSBC) strengthens health-education partnerships and supports effective implementation of healthy school initiatives using a comprehensive school health approach (CSH).

CSH is an evidenced-based “whole school” approach that supports students’ health and academic achievements through four interrelated components: social and physical environment, teaching and learning, healthy school policy and partnerships and service.

DASH manages the Healthy Schools BC program and its website. As such, we create and disseminate provincial tools and support the collaboration between health and education sector partners.
