Wellness Centers on high school campuses are a powerful investment in the health and academic potential of students. They provide increased early interventions for students experiencing emotional problems that may be impacting their ability to learn. Wellness programs have a proven ability to reconnect students back to learning when health and social-emotional barriers are present.
