The Youth Health Nurse works with the
school community on issues that may affect the health and wellbeing of young people and the school community as a whole. Students, parents and staff can speak to Leah confidentially about health issues that may be concerning them.

The Youth Health Nurse can provide information to students on a range of issues including:

  • healthy eating and physical activity
  • feeling unhappy or stressed
  • feeling anxious or depressed
  • relationship problems with family or peers
  • puberty and sexual health
  • smoking, alcohol and other drugs
  • sun awareness

The Youth Health Nurse does not provide:

  • treatment such as medications or first aid
  • physical examinations
  • intensive on-going counselling for psychological problems

Leah is at Home Hill State High School every Wednesday and Thursday mornings.  Teachers and parents can refer students to Leah when necessary. Students can make appointments to see Leah in class time or during the lunch breaks.
