Self help for young people

Is something bothering you? Have you got health concerns that are personal or embarrassing? Are you worried about other people finding out?

The doctors, nurses and other staff at Middlewood offer private and CONFIDENTIAL* help for young people of any age, including under-16 year olds.  We are happy to discuss any problems that you have, whether you think that they are big or small, and whether they are physical or emotional.

*The only time we ever share information is if you or someone else is in danger, and we would talk to you first.

We’ve put some information together to help you make an appointment and then get the best from it.

Health for Teens website

Health for Teens is a really great site helping young people aged 11-19 learn about their health.

There’s loads of information on a whole range of physical and emotional health topics that will be of interest to teenagers, including healthy eating, body image, managing stress, advice on relationships, puberty, sexuality and much more.

There’s movie clips, audio snippets and quizzes to make the site interesting and you can share content easily with your friends via social media.

Take a look around and see what you think …
