Increasing Student and Staff Resilience

Schools function best when students and teachers are happy and healthy. A safe and supportive school climate can increase students’ academic performance as well as job satisfaction and performance in adults. 

Healthier Generation, together with Kaiser Permanente, launched the Resilience in School Environments (RISE) Initiative to support teachers and students with tools and resources to better manage emotions, recognize strengths and weaknesses, and rise above adversity.  

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, schools and districts are navigating an unprecedented shift in their learning environments, creating an even greater need for resources to support the well-being and resilience of students and educators. By design, RISE is well-equipped to immediately meet these needs.

Visit the Action Center to assess your school or district’s social-emotional health using the RISE Index and access resources and trainings to: 

  • Increase staff job satisfaction, including reducing staff stress   
  • Improve safety, connectedness, and relationships among students and staff  
  • Boost student and staff social-emotional learning   
  • Increase efficiency and effectiveness of mental health support systems
