Website targets teen health

Health and lifestyle information is being offered to 12-15 year olds in the form of an online self-assessment service.

NHS Teen LifeCheck offers information on physical activity, nutrition, solvents and illegal drugs, sexual health, alcohol and smoking. It also covers emotional well-being with advice and tips about stress, bullying, relationships and self-esteem as well as providing links to support services. Already successfully trialled in 83 parts of England, LifeCheck will be promoted with adverts on bus shelters and popular teenage websites. www.teenlifecheck.co.uk
