Healthy Environments in Schools Action Team (HESAT)

Toolkit for a Healthy, Respectful, Nonviolent School Environment

You can feel it the minute that you walk into a school where the environment is respectful and non-violent.

Our goal with this toolkit is to help concerned school workers, parents, teachers or teacher's aides or really anyone concerned with a school to share ideas that are working in some of our schools so that we can create or improve that healthy, respectful, nonviolent environment in all Minnesota schools.

This online toolkit has been created by the Healthy Environments in Schools Action Team of the Minnesota Department of Health's Sexual Violence Prevention Program. Members of this action team have contributed resources to this kit. If you have any resources that you would like to recommend, please contact Patty Wetterling.
