Teen Health Wellness News
Teen health wellness is an educational resource supporting overall teen wellness and one of the three winners of the 1440 Foundation challenge out of about 170 submissions.
The challenge was organized by the 1440 Foundation providing grants to support programs and best practices that cultivate authentic relationship skills in education, wellness and the workplace.
Teen Wellness was praised for providing teen health wellness education tools and resources available and accessible through school counselors.
Teen Health Interactive Wellness Tools
Teen Wellness is based on the long-term academic research by Prof. Benjamin Van Voorhees at University of Illinois Chicago.
School counselors use Teen Wellness to teach resiliency skills to students. Teen health wellness will equip school counselors with 13 chapters of interactive lessons, homework exercises and character stories to help students work through relationship problems, behavioral issues and psychological barriers.
Teen Wellness will use the grant to develop a new media version to make learning experiences even more engaging and effective for students, leveraging the new research underway at University of Illinois Chicago.
The goal is to engage all students in learning resiliency skills.

“While the relationship between mental health and student performance is not new, a system that puts them together in actual operation is certainly new and exciting,” says Dr. Benjamin Van Voorhees, chief, section of general pediatrics and adolescent medicine at University of Illinois, Chicago, and technical advisor to Mevident.
“This integration delivers superior benefits for students,” says Mevident Chief Executive Officer Asako Tsumagari.
“It helps students work through relationship problems, behavioral issues and psychological barriers that distract them from schoolwork in a safe online environment where they can also manage their academic and career plans.”
“Naviance clients are committed to creating the optimal environment for their students to reach their maximum potential,” remarked Stephen M. Smith, president of Naviance.
“Adding Teen Wellness on the NavStore provides our Naviance Network members with the ability to address the whole child by working with students to impact not just academic but also emotional milestones.”
