FBISD WHOLE CHILD HEALTH SUPPORTS
Whole Child Health, aligned with the FBISD’s Profile of a Graduate, is committed to supporting and developing the mental, behavioral, social, emotional, and physical health of all students in FBISD. Students are best equipped and inspired to pursue futures beyond what they can imagine when these needs and skills are met and developed. The purpose of the Whole Child Health campaign is to increase awareness of FBISD’s diverse and robust health services and supports and to decrease the stigma around mental health. Our commitment to Whole Child Health includes making sure that each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
