Alcohol and Young People
Much is said in the media about alcohol (and other substance use) and its effects on young people – it can be confusing to make the right choices, keep safe but still enjoy yourself, particularly when we may not understand how alcohol affects our judgement, our bodies... and possibly our future.
Brief Interventions are ‘Single or multiple sessions of motivational discussion focused on increasing the individuals insight and awareness regarding specific health behaviours and their motivation for change.'
Cornwall Healthy Weight
Find events in your area, experience one of our healthy eating and cooking courses for free, join our weight management programme.
Savvy (previously EEFO) has been set up to help you with any issues that you may face in everyday life. Our aim is to find all the young person friendly services in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and put them in one easy to find list. There's also lots of articles on a wide range of issues.
This scheme offers the opportunity for volunteers to work alongside NHS projects that support the health of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly communities. Volunteering offers the opportunity to improve your health and well-being, while making new friends along the way.
Health Trainer Service
