About Michigan Model for Health

Healthy kids are better learners. To ensure all kids are ready to learn, Michigan has required comprehensive health education at all building levels.

Experience Michigan's Tier 1, evidence-based Comprehensive Health Education Curriculum: Michigan Model for Health. It's proven to lead to meaningful behavior changes in the classroom and beyond for youth.

The Michigan Model for Health is a planned sequential K-12 curriculum that addresses essential health skills and covers:

  • Social Emotional Learning
  • Nutrition and Physical Activity
  • Safety
  • Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug prevention
  • Personal Health and Wellness

The preK-12 MMH curriculum addresses CASEL's Social Emotional Learning Competencies and the Health Education standards. Curriculum and materials are rich with opportunities to address State Standards in reading and writing.

Research studies show students that receive the Michigan Model for Health Curriculum have stronger communication skills, better skills in managing their feelings and actions, improved attitudes about taking actions to stay safe and stronger drug and tobacco refusal skills.

MMH is Nationally Recognized and Evidence-Based
