This article explores connections between the mental health and educational systems by profiling the Redefining Actions and Decisions (RAD) curriculum, a theory-based, developmentally informed HIV education program for middle and high schools. RAD was developed by Deborah R. Schoeberlein and evaluated by Dr. John Brett. RAD's public health approach, which has gained considerable attention at the national level, argues that HIV prevention, either through risk-abstinence or risk-reduction techniques, is an appropriate strategy for safeguarding community health.
