TYF 'Hey Good Lookin' Statewide Forum on Health and Wellbeing

Date: Thu, 14/06/2012

The Tasmanian Youth Forum (TYF) launched their communiqué on Health and Wellbeing with the Minister for Community Development, Cassy O’Connor MP on 15 May 2012.

The communiqué, written by TYF member Caitlin Frost, details the results of the day-long statewide Hey Good Lookin’ Forum, held on International World Aids Day in December last year. 

This forum provided young Tasmanians aged 12-25 years with the chance to discuss their concerns about health and wellbeing issues in Tasmania, across topics such as sexual health, body image and fitness. 

One of the main findings was that young Tasmanians are aware of the many health issues that affect their wellbeing, however their understanding of these issues is not as comprehensive as they would like. The communiqué is on the YNOT website.
