What is a Youth Health Champion?

Guidance for Schools & Colleges

It is important to be clear about the main responsibilities of a Youth Health Champion, and also to recognise the boundaries. A Youth Health Champion is not expected to give direct health advice, nor offer counselling or one to one support. They are, however, required to acts as "signposters" or "links" between students and other health professionals and services.
