The Little Book of Useful Stuff - the young person's toolkit for a healthy life

 

Teen and early adult years can be a confusing time, with many questions like:

  • What should I expect during puberty?

  • How do I get medical help?

  • What does safer sex mean?

  • What if it's all a bit embarrassing and I'm not sure who to ask?

Now the NHS in Gateshead has published The Little Book of Useful Stuff to help young people aged 13+ to keep safe, stay healthy and make informed decisions in their lives.

The Little Book of Useful Stuff is overseen by health professionals and guided by young people in Gateshead who helped to choose the subject matter, design themes and even the title to keep it relevant to readers.
