Your partner in school health

At Kaiser Permanente, we’re dedicated to helping meet the unique health needs of schools and communities.

Kaiser Permanente Thriving Schools

Schools are passionate about ensuring that all students succeed, but they can’t address the health of their employees and students alone. That’s why Kaiser Permanente created Thriving Schools. We’re committed to serving as a valuable partner in health to schools and districts across the country, helping to ensure that teachers, staff, and students have the support they need to thrive — in learning and in health.

Mental Health

Supporting the mental health and resilience of students, staff, and teachers is critical for creating a positive school climate.

Social Health

Our living conditions, safety, access to health care, social connections, and ability to maintain a job all have an impact on our health.

Equity & Access
