Health

Health is more than just preventing and treating disease. Health is also about your physical, social and emotional well-being and there are a lot of things that can affect it.

Moving into adulthood involves a new independence and the freedom to experiment. Many young people engage in risk-taking behaviours and some of these, such as alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs, or unsafe sexual activity, can have a detrimental impact on your health.
