A discussion follows on mental health with a focus on enhancing students’ well-being, with the construct of resilience used to promote positive qualities and highlight protective factors that enhance well-being. Finally, the Health Promoting Schools framework outlines the importance of schools in establishing a healthy environment that is conducive to learning.
