Healthy Learning Resources

The Greater Rochester Health Foundation designed videos to help teachers, school staff, parents and community members learn more about healthy learning practices, how to incorporate them into the classroom and how to get involved in improving our children’s health and education. 

Our Healthy Learning Video Series showcases these practices in action right here in Rochester.  Video topics include: Active Kids = Active Minds, Math and Movement, Learning Through Action, Recess, Safe Routes to School and Parent Engagement.  

See topic links below to watch the videos. 

Children's Social-Emotional Health

In January, the Greater Rochester Health Foundation’s Commission on Children’s Behavioral Health in the Finger Lakes presented a report that identified gaps in behavioral health care for our region’s children. More than 150 community and health care leaders joined together to discuss the challenges facing our region’s children and how we can work together to make a difference. Click to watch the video!


On May 24, 2017, WXXI’s Connections with Evan Dawson hosted three members of the Greater Rochester Initiative for Children’s Social and Emotional Health Implementation Task Force for a discussion about the findings from the Crisis in Care report and some of the positive work being done in the community to support children’s social and emotional health.
