This blog describes what a coordinated school health program (CSHP) is and how one can go about getting one started.
From the time a child starts school to the time they go off to college, a child will spend thousands of hours in class. Therefore, it is to the benefit of students to be able to participate in a a program that offers them an opportunity to be healthy for the rest of their lives.
There are 8 components that make up a CSHP:

(1) health education;
(2) physical education;
(3) health services;
(4) nutrition services;
(5) counseling, psychological, and social services;
(6) healthy and safe school environments;
(7) health promotion for staff;
(8) family/community involvement.
After one gets support from the school’s administration, a plan which prioritizes the needs of students should be developed. Afterwards, options for training staff and the community should be considered.
