Welcome to Teen Health & Wellness
The NEW Teen Health & Wellness: Real Life, Real Answers—the award-winning, critically acclaimed online resource—provides middle school 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.
Teen Health & Wellness is even more robust, more interactive, and simply more "amazing." The database now speaks your language—over 50 of them—with instant article translation. Text-to-speech allows students to listen to article content and read along as the text is highlighted. Social bookmarking allows users to connect friends and family to balanced, sensitive, and caring information. Video and personalized health calculators add a new level of interactivity. Plus, over 50 new articles on subjects ranging from digital etiquette to financial literacy to being a GLBT teen guarantee that, when teens have questions, Teen Health & Wellness has the answer.
Teen Health & Wellness is being updated to reflect changes to the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V).
