Health Education

Health Education Resources

Our prevention team has created at-home family guides for some topics in the Botvin LifeSkills curriculum. These guides will help you have conversations around difficult emotions and topics.

We developed the guides based on the Botvin LifeSkills Middle School Level 1 curriculum.  Level 1 is geared towards 6th -7th grade students.  However, many of the conversations and activities could be appropriate for all ages.
