“This site has an incredible amount of information available on health and mental health topics for teens, parents, and teachers. It is intuitive and updated on a regular basis. The homepage, for instance, is updated with the latest medical news and social issues so users will always have a reason to come back to the site. With all of the issues facing young adults today parents, teachers, and librarians will be glad to have a reliable and informative place to send students with their health and social concerns. Highly recommended.” —ARBA Online (American Reference Books Annual)

“It is extremely accessible and the information provided is ‘hip,’ up-to-date, and grounded in science and medicine. Students can also submit essays on issues that deal with pertinent issues such as death, suicide, and friendship. ... I really think that, by including student voices in the database, the purely fact-driven database model recedes and a more interactive, end-user interface is created. ... Many of our regional school library systems have picked up the database and have seen great responses from teaching staff, librarians, and students.” —Charles O’Bryan, School Library System, Director, DCMO BOCES, NY

They love the database; our teachers love the database; and I couldn’t be happier. Every school and library serving teenagers should subscribe. Excellent resource!” —Cynthia M. Davis, School Library Media Specialist, East High School, Buffalo, NY

“Last night my 16 year old son was working on an assignment for his health class. He had to get 2 articles from the internet on a certain topic and then summarize and compare the content from each. He found one article quite quickly and then went to Teen Health & Wellness. He immediately found what he was looking for and was able to breeze through the assignment. He had to say which article he thought was better and he picked the Teen Health & Wellness article because it gave him better information. My son is a reluctant reader and he was able to use the Rosen Web site easily and with success.” —Donna Palmyra, Parent
