Strong school health programs = Long term success

new paper from Bruce Ferguson (SickKids) and Keith Power (Memorial University), shows that strong mental and physical health programs in schools have broad and long-lasting individual, social and economic impacts. But they say that despite the evidence, comprehensive school health programs are rarely implemented and are often squeezed out by other priorities.
Ferguson and Powers review a wide range of programs and measurement tools and their findings provide strong support for broader measures of success that include physical and mental health.
