About this Unit
The unit explores Contemporary Health Issues which relate to young peoples’ health and wellbeing through a range of topics and issues that construct young peoples lives . Students will examine the nature of young people’s lives and the psychosocial, sociological, and political environments that significantly impact and influence young peoples lives and health. The nature, extent and social determinants of risk taking will be explored in light of the ‘tasks of adolescence’. The unit will further equip students with the skills to seek out appropriate support networks and agencies within the community, and to put into place processes that will assist young people to better deal with these health issues.
