When people are young and healthy, they often think they’re invincible, but certain behaviors put adolescents at risk for serious health problems.
Behaviors that are concerning include violence; tobacco, alcohol, and other drug use; risky sexual behaviors; unhealthy diets; physical inactivity; and behaviors that contribute to motor vehicle injuries, including texting while driving.
If you’re a parent or work with youth, you can make a difference.
Talk with young people about these risky behaviors and emphasize and model a healthy lifestyle. B96 Cares!
