How effective are teacher-led or counselor-led interventions when it comes to adolescent health? This 17-month trial conducted in government-run secondary schools examines the efficacy of school-based interventions for promoting adolescent health (SEHER). It is a multicomponent behavioral health promotion intervention that includes education on sexual and reproductive health, gender equity, bullying, violence, and addiction. The program was delivered by either a school counselor or a teacher in Bihar. It revealed that counselor-led interventions are more effective than teacher-led interventions. This study can help inform the implementation of behavioral and psychosocial health interventions for adolescents in India. It is also a useful reference for policymakers, health program implementors, and social organizations working in the area of adolescent mental health.
