PolicyLab Celebrates Teen Health Week
Adolescence is a critical time of development and teens face many unique challenges to their health and well-being. From navigating the transition to adult care, behavioral health concerns, sexual and reproductive issues, and now the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic—this time can have implications on the rest of a teen’s life.
In honor of Teen Health Week, we’re sharing new resources all week that seek to help us better understand and address many of teens’ unique needs:
- STIs Among Youth During COVID-19 May Be the Tip of the Iceberg
- Period Poverty: The Public Health Crisis We Don't Talk About
- Coping with Chronic Pain: Reducing Suicidal Thoughts in Youth Through Resilience Coaching
Be sure to check back throughout the week as we share new content and engage with us on social media (@PolicyLabCHOP) to join the conversation. Beyond Teen Health Week, our Adolescent Health and Well-being Portfolio aims to support adolescents' development into healthy, productive adults all year long.
