School health services
Children who are or have been victims of violence or who are showing aggressive or disruptive behaviour at school have a particular need for support and intervention. It is important to identify these children in order to provide them with services, evaluate their progress and conduct follow-up. Schools have a role to play in this process, even where resources are scarce. In a Health-Promoting School, health services work in partnership with and are provided for students, school personnel, families and community members.(41) They should be coordinated with other services and activities at school and in the community to utilise the potential of specialist resources to provide advice and support for health promotion and violence prevention.(42)
Schools and communities need to consider what preventive and treatment services are best provided at school sites and avoid duplicating services available in the community that would easily be accessible for students and school personnel.
