From Colleen Kelly, HDSB Online/Web Library Technician:

"Teen Health & Wellness: Real Life, Real Answers allows teens and young people to research health-related issues important to their physical and mental well-being.  It’s both a research/report tool and a self-help resource that can be easily navigated either by browsing or keyword search.

As with all Library Services information databases, this site can be automatically accessed within the HDSB IP range.  If you are outside of the IP range, you will see a login page asking you to input your Network Username and Password.  Once you have entered the information, you will be taken to the Teen Health & Wellness homepage.

The Teen Hotlines app is available for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android tablets, and chromebooks.  It is not available for Blackberry devices.  This free app lists hotlines, help lines, and Web sites organized by subject.  From school violence and depression to eating disorders and suicide, these national organizations can also refer teens to state and local services in their community."
