About this Unit
The unit explores contemporary health issues related to young people. Students will examine a range of topics from a multidisciplinary approach, which include the social, cultural, political and biological factors that influence and construct young people’s lives and health. Students will explore pathogenic and salutogenic approaches to understanding and promoting young people’s health. When considering and analysing the influences and contexts, students will be able to gather resources and develop diverse meaningful strategies that will assist young people to promote health practices.
