Help in shaping
healthier future

A new learning resource aimed at changing the way the next generation thinks about health and wellbeing has been launched.

A joint initiative between the Royal Society for Public Health, the Health Foundation and the PSHE Association has developed free lesson plans to help teachers raise secondary school students’ awareness of the social and environmental factors that shape health and wellbeing.

The Health: From Here to Where? resource, aimed at year nine and 10 students, is centred on a short story about a dystopian society.

The main aim is to get young people thinking about the factors, beyond health care, that help shape our health and wellbeing such as education, employment and social networks.
