ChatHealth is a new way for young people to get advice and
support around health related issues directly from the School
Health Service. It is a safe and secure messaging service
which protects confidentiality and anonymity and is monitored by a
team of trained school nurses. Young people aged between 11 and 16
can text for advice on all kinds of health issues, such as sexual
health, emotional health and wellbeing, bullying, healthy eating
and any general health concerns. The service has increased
young people's access to the school health service and is provided
Monday to Friday 9am-4pm including school holidays.
