The Youth Health Literacy manual is an important text to understand not only the diverse issues that young people encounter during this vital point in their lives but also the ways in which youth workers, educators, trainers, organisers, and parents can better support young people develop healthy lifestyles. The manual focuses on themes that are relevant to youths, such as mental and physical health, digital literacy, and gender and sexuality, and explores these themes in an open, diverse, and inclusive way.
Through detailed and concise information presented, the manual provides a basis for which other entities and individuals who work with youth can assess their own educational material and understand the health needs of youth in their communities. It is culturally relevant and competent, to be aware of the diversity that exists within communities and the different issues that youth may face depending on their own backgrounds. It is a one-stop-shop for a comprehensive understanding of youth health literacy and a vital resource for those who work with youth and aim to promote wellness in various aspects of their lives. It presents different experiential workshops that engage with youth and help them to connect, ask-answer questions, and break preconceptions.
With unbiased information and research that directly reflects youth input, this Youth Health Literacy manual succeeds in presenting relevant information regarding the concerns youth have and provides tools that youth educators can use to assist youth in tackling their concerns. It not only helps those who work with youth, but also provides definitions, breaks misconceptions, and gives youth the information they need to make the informed decisions that impact their lives and futures. Ultimately, this manual is a key resource that truly addresses the unique needs that today’s youth experiences in navigating this transitional time in their lives. Go to the manual
