LearntobeHealthy.org Adds Mental Health Curriculum for Teens
Date:10/21/2009

YORK, Pa., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- LearntobeHealthy.org, a free health education site developed by the Susan P. Byrnes Health Education Center, has added new online curriculum for grades 10 through 12 that explores topics such as stress management, bullying and cyber-bullying, maintaining healthy relationships, staying safe online and making healthy decisions.

The new online kit, titled "Face the Music," informs teens of the dangers of posting personal information and pictures online, the symptoms of common mental health conditions teens may suffer from, and where to go for help. The kit also helps teens identify types of stress, what stress does to the body, and healthy ways to deal with it. As teens explore the kit, they will engage in interactive activities through familiar technologies such as an iPod, laptop and cell phone on their computer screen.

This new curriculum features many unique activities and tools that help teens maintain healthy lifestyles. For example, teens who visit the site can create an ePortfolio to highlight their strengths and abilities, promoting self-esteem and exploring future goals. The kit also contains "Match Mania," a dating-show style activity that guides teens through different attitudes and personalities commonly found in high schools and how to navigate healthy relationships.

As with all the health education games, activities and supplemental materials found on LearntobeHealthy.org, those included in this new kit are aligned to Pennsylvania and National Health Education Standards. LearntobeHealthy.org is a free online health education resource for teachers, students age K-12, and parents made possible through funding provided by Highmark Healthy High 5, a children's health promotion initiative of the Highmark Foundation.

To access "Face the Music" and other complimentary online content and activities, simply visit www.LearntobeHealthy.org and join for free.
