Health and Wellbeing: A guide to working with young people

This guide was developed as a resource for Youth Workers and a wide range of other professionals and volunteers who deliver health and well-being messages to children and young people aged 11-25. It provides health promotion information and activities on a range of topic areas.

Topics covered are:

Icebreakers Smoking
Food and Fitness Alcohol
Emotional Well-being Drugs
Sexual Health and Relationships Immunisations

Each section contains a number of activities which can be delivered as required either as part of a programme of study or as standalone sessions. Also included within each section is some background information about each topic and a list of useful contacts or websites.


The guide is presented as a pdf document, which will need to be opened in Adobe Acrobat. (Adobe Acrobat Reader is available as a free download here).
