Alberta Health Services Comprehensive School Health Working Group

The Alberta Health Services Comprehensive School Health Working Group was formed in September 2011 and is led by the Alberta Health Services Healthy Children and Youth team within Healthy Living.

Since its formation, this group has been tasked with gathering an inventory of comprehensive school health education resources that are used across the province along with the review of these resources. Each resource has been carefully reviewed and evaluated against set criteria. All resources selected and posted on this webpage are evidence-based and align with the Alberta Health Services Framework for the Comprehensive School Health Approach.

The working group includes provincial representatives from Alberta Health Services Healthy Children and Youth; Injury Prevention; Reproductive Health; Addictions Prevention; Mental Health Promotion; Mental Health and Early Screening; Oral Health; Nutrition Services; and school health representatives from all five Alberta Health Services Zones. Additional stakeholders representing external partners include: Ever Active Schools, Alberta Healthy School Communities Wellness Fund, and APPLE Schools.
