EVERFI courses blend evidence-based strategies with innovative instructional design to maximize engagement and impact. Data is collected using pre- and post-assessments for all students who complete the Mental Wellness Basics curriculum to measure how the course impacts student knowledge, attitudes and behaviors regarding mental wellness.
Mental Wellness Basics leverages the same prevention framework utilized in EVERFI’s Prescription Drug Safety course. Results from EVERFI’s first school year implementing Prescription Drug Safety include:
- 49% increase in student assessment scores after completing the program
- 25% increase in students’ confidence in their personal refusal skills
- 35% increase in students who agree that sharing their prescriptions could cause harm
