Some youth in Mississippi are at risk for violence, sexual activity, tobacco use, and poor nutrition. The Mississippi State Department of Health and the State Department of Education have the shared goal of giving youth the opportunity to become "healthy, educated, and contributing" members of their communities. This document outlines collaboration between the State Department of Health and the State Board of Education, including a discussion of future collaboration and key findings of the 1993 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). Also included are core recommendations and administration and funding recommendations for health education, school health services, a healthy school environment, and physical education and fitness. "The Year 2000 and Beyond" outlines the next few years as critical in the success or failure of school health programs, reiterating the importance of issues and challenges. (BGC)
