New website for ‘Health for Teens launched
LPT has recently launched a ground-breaking new website ‘Health for Teens’ – developed by school nurses and over 80 young people from Leicestershire’s secondary schools. The unique website www.healthforteens.co.uk is the first NHS website that has been created especially to support teens with their mental and physical health and wellbeing. It features interactive content, films, and quizzes - written by experts from across LPT services including school nursing, health improvement, smoking cessation, dietetics, and mental health. The website’s comprehensive content includes topics as wide ranging as exam stress to anger management, and from spots to alcohol. Health for Teens complements, and features, a web chat facility linking to the multi-award winning school nurse messaging system ChatHealth - enabling young people to receive advice and support directly from a health professional.
