Office of Student Wellness


Office of Student Wellness Logo

Formed in 2014 in response to the needs of local school districts, the Office of Student Wellness is committed to the development of the whole child. We work, in collaboration with local communities, school districts, and individuals, to support students as they become fully productive members of society. Our approach allows us to affect real, meaningful change in the lives of all Granite Staters while remaining fiscally responsible, culturally competent, and family and youth driven. You will find more information on our work and approach below.

The Dimensions

Student wellness is the recognition by schools, districts, and educational professionals that there are many factors that impact a student’s academic attainment. It is an approach that focuses on supporting the whole child. The dimensions of wellness include: Emotional, Personal, Intellectual, Physical, Environmental, Occupational, and Social factors. For more information on the dimensions of wellness, click here!

The Framework

The Office of Student Wellness utilizes a common framework for the development of all Student Wellness initiatives. The framework identifies the guiding principles and strategic approaches that must be used to ensure success and sustainability of a student wellness program.For more information on our framework, click here!

School Health

School Health is a part of the New Hampshire Department of Education, Division of Educational Improvement. School Health provides information, resources, and technical assistance in the areas of HIV prevention education, Health education, and School Health Services. The School Health Services program exists to assist school districts to meet the health care needs of school aged children.

Creating a System of Care

In June 2016, Governor Sununu signed into law a bill that called for a top-to-bottom review of what behavioral health services are available to kids in NH, how they’re delivered (in schools, in the community and elsewhere), and how to make sure separate agencies are working together to get kids the care they need. Read more about that here!

Central to the success of that law, we are working closely with the Department of Health and Human Services to develop “a delivery system of behavioral health services across the lifespan of children, youth, and adults with behavioral health needs.” Below please find the annual reports of our progress:
