Rise Above

Launched by Public Health England, Rise Above offers help for young people on how to deal with personal and societal issues.

Created by young people for young people, Rise Above aims to build emotional resilience in people between 11 and 16 years old, by equipping them with the skills and knowledge they need to make informed decisions, and help deal with the pressures of growing up. It also encourages conversations about the key health and wellbeing issues that affect teens and young people.

Rise Above tackles the topics that young people are most concerned about, including puberty, relationships, alcohol, self-harm, smoking, contraceptive choices, drugs, body confidence, peer pressure and mental health.
