Designed as a two-part course, the primary goal of Healthy Brains Healthy Bodies is to understand the interplay between your environment, epigenome, brain, and behaviors. Your environment and what you do impacts the structure and function of your brain, and therefore your subsequent thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. These courses involve fundamental information on epigenetics, brain structure and function across development, as well as typical behavioral and emotional functioning. The courses are designed to help you support youth in your care in understanding the impacts of their choices, and to help you guide them toward healthier behaviors.

Healthy Brains Healthy Bodies I can be taken as a stand-alone course. To take Healthy Brains Healthy Bodies II, you must first complete Healthy Brains Healthy Bodies I.
