It’s no secret that when you feel well, you perform better. It’s called the mind/body connection. When it comes to education, if students aren’t healthy (physically and mentally), it can have an immense impact on their academic and behavioral outcomes in school.
Recognizing this relationship, the Picard Center is involved in a wide variety of health initiatives in the areas of physical health, mental health, and school health infrastructure.
