Supporting Moreland schools to create happy and healthy environments.

What is it?

Merri Health develops collaborative partnerships with primary and secondary schools in Moreland to create a healthy, inclusive and safe school environment for students, staff and families.

We support schools to review their policies, environment, curriculum, engagement strategies, student-led projects, school culture and referral pathways to ensure they promote wellbeing and prevent poor health.
