School Based Youth Health Nurse (SBYHN)

 

 

School Based Youth Health Nurse works with young people, school staff and parents to:

  • promote health and wellbeing
  • create a supportive, healthy school environment
  • connect people with other support services.

 

The Youth Health Nurse can provide health and wellbeing information about:

  • healthy eating and physical activity
  • feeling unhappy or stressed
  • relationships
  • healthy skin
  • personal and family problems
  • growth and development
  • sexual  health
  • smoking, alcohol and other drugs.

 

In most cases, it is best for young people to talk to their parents or carers about health and wellbeing issues.

The Youth Health Nurse can support young people to do this.
