Health is multidimensional. A person cannot be sound in mind and body unless he or she is emotionally supported, socially engaged and physically active. Similarly, communities cannot be strong without resilient, civic-minded members.

Using a developmental framework created by The Search Institute, a Minneapolis-based nonprofit research organization, groups focus on ways to introduce essential developmental assets into people’s lives.

Supporting grassroots health promotion

Interact for Health designed tools to guide its Thriving Community grantees through the community-engagement process. We have found that these tools build core competencies, confidence and a process for engagement that produce results at the local level.
