Event description
What you should know! Mental Health, Sexual Health and Physical Health of your teen

About this Event

It’s hard to be a teenager. Rarely does an adult look back to that time and think, ‘That was the BEST!’ It’s a period in our lives full of challenges, and physical, emotional and mental transformations. In this talk, two IMC doctors, with years of experience supporting teenagers in Australia, the UK and Singapore, will discuss the particular health issues facing the youth of today, with the aim of helping you guide and support your children better through their adolescent years.

Mental Health: Surveys suggest more young people have problems with mental health today than 30 years ago, with expectations in the cyberworld particularly contributing to the risk of certain disorders. How do parents recognise when to seek medical support?

Physical Health: Participation in physical activity can assist in social development and allow young people to more readily adopt other healthy behaviours. and demonstrate higher academic performance at school. How can parents assist their teens to form life-long healthy habits?

Sexual Health: Parents should be aware of the challenges for our growing children: bodily changes, sexual identity interrogations, sexual transmitted diseases, pornography and unplanned pregnancies. What’s the best way to approach this sensitive and complicated area of development?
