Schools provide a key platform for promoting health literacy in young people and it's important to provide basic health information, as well as teach skills for children and young people to become empowered to take responsibility for their health. This can be done by improving their knowledge and supporting their ability to seek help.
This LibGuide will provide fun and educational activities and resources for teachers, parents and leaders of children's organisations. They will provide a starting point for talking about health literacy and health and wellbeing, as well as provide further information, references and articles for a deeper understanding.
