We believe.

To be engaged, we must feel included and valued.
In the Office of Social & Emotional Wellness, we are unified in our shared commitment to social responsibility; we believe that diversity in age, race, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and perspective results in stronger, more creative and healthier communities.

We understand that creating an environment where everyone, from any background, can do their best work is the right thing to do.

Implementing NH's Grades K-12 Back-to-School Guidance

On July 14th, NH Governor Chris Sununu, issued New Hampshire Grades K-12 Back-to-School Guidance. Contained within the guidance are a list of "flexible" recommendations crafted by the School Transition Reopening and Redesign Taskforce. To support NH educators, families, and students plan and prepare for the upcoming school year, below you will find resources, information, and templates to "Support Student, Family, and Educator Wellness".

Support for MTSS-B

The NH Student Wellness Toolkit is your premier resource for considering, starting, or improving a Student Wellness program in your school, district, and community. Use of this toolkit is completely customizable, however, we encourage you to explore each phase in the order listed below. Based on implementation science, each phase will provide important foundational information meant to help guide you through those that follow.

Professional Development and Training

The key to a successful Student Wellness program is continual learning and training. Below please find a calendar of upcoming trainings, events, and professional development opportunities that are either directly sponsored by the Bureau of Student Wellness or are hosted by another organization that is connected with our work in some way.

Resources and Learning

The Office of Social and Emotional Wellness aims to support both the adoption and implementation of a local Multi-Tiered System of Support for Behavioral Health and Wellness (MTSS-B) as well as increased awareness and understanding of several key focus areas that impact our students and school communities.


This is the Department's Annual Report of Substantiated Bullying and Cyberbullying in the schools. The report includes the number and type of incidents broken down by Elementary, Middle School and High School.
