This brand new website launched by Healthwatch Essex points young people in the direction of a healthier, less stressful and more rewarding lifestyle. In just a few clicks, young people will be able to find information on health and well being, sexual health and relationships, and mental health. Topics covered include conditions such as diabetes and asthma, HPV vaccinations and drugs and alcohol misuse. There’s also information on managing stress, bullying and peer pressure and difficulties at home, as well as guidance for young carers and support for young people with disabilities.
It includes a comprehensive list of services and organisations in Essex that can help young people and gives tips on taking responsibility for their own health, well being and safety.
