About the Webinar

What would a school look like if it was designed with mental health in mind?

Too many public schools look and feel like prisons, but we know that nurturing environments are better for learning. Research consistently shows that access to nature, big classroom windows, and open campuses reduce stress, anxiety, disorderly conduct, and crime, and improve academic performance. But too few school designers and decision-makers apply this research to create healthy schools. In her book, Schools That Heal, Claire details the myriad opportunities—from furniture to classroom improvements to whole campus renovations—to make supportive learning environments for our children and teenagers.

Schools That Heal is available through Island Press in book and e-book form.
