SOMERVILLE – The Somerville Office of Prevention and the Somerville Health & Human Services Department invite you to join in a World Café style presentation of the 2018 Somerville High School Student Health Survey results on Thursday, January 31, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Somerville High School Culinary Arts Bistro (use atrium entrance).
The results will be presented in the form of an interactive game, facilitated by youth from Somerville Positive Forces 100 (SPF100), followed by a “World Café” style discussion about youth health issues, ideas to improve student well-being, and how participants will incorporate this information into their work going forward. Refreshments will be served.
The Student Health Survey was administered to all Somerville High School students in Feb. 2018, and anonymous answers were compiled into an analytical report and compared with state and national averages in various student health categories including alcohol use, drug use, bullying, physical, mental and sexual health, overall school environment, and school services. A survey will be administered to Somerville middle school students in this spring.
