Ophea’s Healthy Schools and Communities Resource Database has been developed to provide access to a variety of helpful resources to support your work in the area of healthy schools and communities. This fully interactive, searchable database has been populated with resources from public health, community health, sport and recreation, and other community partners as well as resources from Ophea.
We encourage you to submit your own resources (be it a specific program or helpful tool) to allow this database to facilitate sharing and learning between public health and other community partners and to reduce duplication of efforts. Resources can be submitted quickly and easily by using the resource submission form located below.
Please Note: Resources and tools are not evaluated or approved by Ophea. Ophea is providing this resource database for information sharing purposes. Ophea neither endorses nor recommends the use of the resources included.
We have however, asked contributors to indicate whether or not the resource/tool is based in evidence-informed practice based on the following definition: Practice that is attentive to evidence, including research, experiential knowledge of the organization, cultural context, and educational, symbolic/political and process uses, and that uses knowledge syntheses of summarized findings to inform practice, decision-making and implementation.
