Student voices: dealing with real issues

Reality Check – information on youth mental health

Here’s a step in the right direction. Students helping themselves help each other. Found this in the weekend Canberra Times (25/11/2006, News p.13).

Students have helped develop a website exploring and exposing the ins and outs of body image.

Karin MacDonald, Brindbella MLA helped launch the website recently, along with editor of Lip Magazine, Rachel Funari.

Media Check encourages youth to resist media hype by creating and publishing your own media messages relating to mental health and well being”

Just another positive of the read/write web wouldn’t you think?
