Great New Resource for You: Teen Health & Wellness

I just got word that we have subscribed to an truly awesome award winning health database just for teens (I've been hoping we would pick up for ages).

From our reference services blog:

Teen Health & Wellness: Real Life, Real Answers—the award-winning, critically acclaimed online resource—provides middle and high school students with nonjudgmental, straightforward, standards-aligned, curricular and self-help support. Topics include diseases, drugs, alcohol, nutrition, mental health, suicide, bullying, green living, financial literacy, and more. Developed for teens, with their unique concerns and perspectives.

Because this is a database, when you click on the link above it is going to ask you to log into your library account.  That is because this is not just some free website with random information we are linking to...this is researched, accurate information organized in a way that is optimized to help teens, and we pay a subscription to access you know it is going to be good.

A great place to learn about issues that affect your health...both physically and emotionally.  Please share this one with your friends...because it is so important for teens to have access to good solid honest health information!

Take a look and tell me which part you like best!
