Young people are getting better at looking after their health

A new study by the University of the West of England shows that young people are becoming more responsible for looking after their own health.

The study looks at the Facts4Life health and wellbeing programme, one of several being delivered in Gloucestershire schools. Facts4Life, run by a GP and a former deputy head teacher, helps children understand that their mental wellbeing and physical health are inextricably linked and that they don't always need medicine to get better.
