Classrooms need to be safe, supportive, and respectful learning environments to foster high levels of student wellbeing.

Furthermore, the studies have highlighted the impact teacher-student relationships have on student wellbeing. It is suggested that supportive teacher-student relationships promote and develop student wellbeing effectively. In summary, this literature review reflects the significance of creating teaching and learning environments that promote student wellbeing for future health.
