BHHS Health curriculum supports mental health using Prepare U

 At Bloomfield Hills High School, Health is a required course for graduation. This one semester course provides a host of helpful resources to support students’ mental health. Prepare U has been an integral part of the curriculum for several years, and provides multiple units and resources for mental health. Prepare U also has a parent portal that families can access, to find many resources that support mental health. The BHHS high school Health course also provides a "yellow pages" - an actual book - for students.  This contains other resources and websites that students can use if they need them. 
Nancy Lewand, who is a new Health teacher this school year at BHHS, taught Health and PE at International Academy (Bloomfield Hills campus) for 5 years, and also has 9 years of experience in elementary and middle schools teaching Health. Lewand notes, “I think Mental health is a very important topic to cover in high school health classes.  Unfortunately, I think mental health is a topic that is often overlooked and/or misunderstood in our society. My goal is to help students make sense of any unclear or misguided information and help them to make positive and well-informed choices regarding their mental health at this time in their lives and in the future.”

As soon as they sent me the email saying that he is not going to need anything going into kindergarten, and that he is ready for full-on kindergarten, I’m not going to lie, I got teary-eyed.”
