Client Reviews

  • Participant response to our Introduction to Skills-Based Health Education Training: "I have been reminded of the value of skills and their applications vs content, content, content. The practice or modeling of the skills has provided a consistent message to my students."

Skills-based health education is a crucial element in the development of healthy young people. We know from research that learning health content alone will not give students the tools they need in order to maintain positive health behaviors, change unhealthy behaviors, and delay the onset of risky behaviors. Our skills-based health education trainings and products prepare educators to teach and assess skills-based health education with functional knowledge that will equip students to lead healthy and thriving lives.

  • Trainings

    RMC Health provides training and resources for K–12 teachers, schools, and districts to implement skills-based health education.

All trainings equip educators with the tools and strategies they need to create safe, inclusive, and effective health education classes by providing participants with hands-on activities, authentic practice of teaching strategies, and current research on health education.

    Clear and consistent policies are a key component of tobacco and marijuana prevention in schools.

  • Prevention

    Prevention efforts start with understanding school and community data around risk behaviors, as well as those factors that set young people at higher risk for engaging in risk behaviors or serve as protective forces for preventing these risk behaviors (risk and protective factors). RMC Health can help you through every step of the process:

      • Identify data sources and analyze the data
      • Prioritize risk behaviors to address based on the data
      • Select evidence-based or promising practices or programs to mitigate risk factors and strengthen protective factors
      • Create implementation and sustainability plans

  • Intervention

    Implementing evidence-based programs that address the specific risk and protective factors in your school community are essential for effective substance use prevention and intervention. RMC Health can provide support to implement a selected program consistently throughout your school or district and help you overcome barriers and obstacles that often arise in the implementation process.

    Additionally, RMC Health offers an online alternative to suspension education program for youth who have violated a tobacco policy at school or in the community. The Second Chance program is a web-based, interactive, and self-directed program designed to increase student awareness about the skills and strategies to resist risky behaviors that impact their health. In addition to traditional tobacco products, the program addresses e-cigarettes and vaping, as well as marijuana.

  • Second Chance

    In addition to our other intervention services, RMC Health is excited to offer Second Chance, a web-based, interactive and self-directed educational program designed to be used as part of an alternative-to-suspension plan for youth who violate tobacco policy in their school or communities. Schools, youth-serving organizations, and juvenile justice systems can utilize Second Chance as part of a comprehensive, non-punitive strategy for preventing tobacco and nicotine product use. The online program is interactive, using video, digital manipulatives, self-reflection, and quizzes to engage young people in understanding and evaluating their relationship with tobacco and nicotine products. Incorporating Second Chance in schools leads to lower rates of recidivism of tobacco infractions. To learn more about the program, view the flyer and FAQ document below.
