Surrey secondary school children are the first in the country benefitting from being able to access health and wellbeing information and advice through a Children and Family Health Surrey innovative digital resource.
Katrina Sealey, School Nurse, who produced the resource said: “We enlisted the help from a focus group of students in Surrey and their views really shaped how we designed and created the resource.
“Their individual quotes as well as their idea for an ‘It’s OK to be different’ section have all been included and I would like to say a special thank you to those who took part.”
The resource brings together lots of essential information about physical health and emotional well-being, including videos and web links, in an accessible way that young people are familiar with.
Following the successful launch in September 2018, the digital resource has now been updated and improved. The resource is available to year 7 students in Surrey.
Trudy Mills, Director of Children and Family Health Surrey said: “It’s really exciting that young people in Surrey came up with the idea for this digital information, and that we have now created a fantastic resource which is already receiving such positive feedback.”
