Rise Above: a new health and wellbeing site for young people

Public Health England, March 2015

Public Health England has launched a new website, Rise Above, which offers help for young people on how to deal with personal and societal issues.

Created by young people for young people, Rise Above aims to build emotional resilience in people between 11 and 16 years old, by equipping them with the skills and knowledge they need to make informed decisions, and help deal with the pressures of growing up.

The site covers topics such as puberty, relationships, alcohol, self-harm, smoking, contraceptive choices, drugs, body confidence, peer pressure and mental health and encourages conversations in a safe environment.
