Learn about a California high school known for its academic rigor and strong student performance that turned to meditation after several students committed suicide, in this video from NOVA: School of the Future. Henry M. Gunn High School senior Cole McFaul, who in the video recounts the unexpected loss of a close friend to suicide, joined teachers, administrators, and fellow students to introduce mindfulness training to the school’s regular physical education program. By reducing stress and raising awareness of mental health, the training is designed to improve student well-being and change the unhealthy school culture. This resource is part of the NOVA: School of the Future Collection.
