What is a Coordinated School Health Program?
A coordinated school health program (CSHP) model consists of eight interactive components: health education, physical education, health services, nutrition services, counseling & psychological services, health school environment, health promotion for staff, and family/community involvement. Schools by themselves cannot, and should not be expected to, address the nation's most serious health and social problems. Families, health care workers, the media, religious organizations, community organizations that serve youth, and young people themselves also must be systematically involved. However, schools could provide a critical facility in which many agencies might work together to maintain the well-being of young people.
