Strategic Planning Model for Campuses

Interventions to promote emotional health and prevent mental health problems should be chosen in the context of a strategic thinking and planning process.

Whenever possible, campuses should base their interventions on evidence-based research and best practices. The model above provides guidelines for planning successful interventions using a public health approach.
