The Goal

Need for Program

Approximately 12 to 13 percent of the Australian population consists of 15-25-year-olds. However, the adolescent environment, the bridge between childhood and adulthood, together with bodily changes, may make physical, mental, and social development riskier. Some teenagers have concerns about their health, e.g. their body image and their sexuality. Others disregard their health in quite significant ways, including the use of damaging recreational substances. Promoting healthy habits in teenagers and diverting them from destructive behaviours is the responsibility of all those in positions of professional influence.

Purpose of Program

This program provides insights about teenage health concerns and strategies for promoting a road to a hale and hearty adulthood.

Your learning outcomes:

Understand the many changes that teenagers are faced with and how these impact on their behaviours and moods
Use communication tools relevant to teenagers to promote healthy behaviours and lifestyles during puberty and beyond
Identify and act on early warning signs of risky behaviours and social problems to minimise untoward outcomes on normal development
Engage with relevant referral services and organisations involved with advancing adolescent health to foster a holistic approach to healthy adulthood
