Your "Back to School" Toolkit
Teen Health & Wellness should be a critical component of any librarian's "back to school" toolkit. The database provides students with comprehensive curricular support and self-help tools on topics including diseases, drugs, alcohol, nutrition, fitness, mental health, diversity, family life, work readiness, and more.
Teen Health & Wellness supports information literacy with its continually updated content and regularly updated homepage features connecting medical news and social issues to database articles. Every article includes the date it was last updated, along with the names of the author and expert reviewer, plus a link to the reviewer's bio.

Teen Health & Wellness is excited to announce that several urban school districts have selected the database for integration into health, fitness, and family life curricula and as a reference and support resource for their middle and high school students. Chicago Public Schools (IL), Denver Public Schools (CO), Oakland Unified School District (CA), and Milwaukee Public Schools (WI) join a growing list of over 2,000 public and private schools and public libraries across the country that recognize Teen Health & Wellness as an important self-help and homework help tool for their communities.

In a recent homepage poll, Teen Health & Wellness asked teens: Is your school safe?
Responses were almost equally split. Half (51%) of teens said that their school was safe, while the other half (49%) said it was not. Unfortunately, these results suggest that half of teens polled do not feel safe at school.
