Early social and emotional development lay the foundation for resiliency throughout the lifespan. However, 70% of adults with mental illness see symptoms emerge in childhood and adolescence. What can we do to give our children an early start to develop lifelong skills of physical and mental "fitness" to help as we deal with challenges through all the life stages. . . what can we help our children with through education/schools to help them stay "healthy and well". Healthy habits can be learned early....what are these healthy habits?
To reach a student; we must meet the student… to determine what is intrinsically valuable and relative to them. There are different types of well-being such as mental well-being, physical well-being, and/or emotional well-being. We find that often these different forms of well-being are often closely interlinked. The well-being of a person is what is ultimately good for this person, what is in the self-interest of this person. This measure directly supports the degree of Wellness exhibited by the student.
