Mental health, alcohol, smoking and LGBTQ: What is the latest research on young people telling us?
There is a huge amount of research about young people, but we are often so busy in our daily mahi that we don't get time to absorb it. Join researchers from the Health Promotion Agency as we highlight some of the latest youth research, and discuss how you can interpret the research in your everyday work. Topics will include:
- Mental health: Young people are much more likely to report feeling isolated than older adults. What do we know about strategies for enhancing connectedness and mental wellbeing?
- Alcohol: How are young New Zealanders drinking? What does the evidence say about the role of parents in supporting their teens to be alcohol-free?
- Tobacco and vaping: How close to smokefree is our youth population? How is vaping changing the smoking landscape?
