Youth offered guide
Year 9 students across the country have received the Blue Light Kidsmart Guide to Life.
The comprehensive booklet provides young people with information on a wide range of topics such as alcohol, bullying, drugs, stress, eating disorders, family, legal issues, grief and loss, harassment and many others. The guide provides a practical summary along with web- sites and phone numbers where young people can turn for further help.
It is a joint partnership between Youthtown and Blue Light, the youth charity which works in partnership with the New Zealand Police. Blue Light acting chief executive Brendon Crompton says: ‘‘The Blue Light Kidsmart Guide to Life provides all the information they might need in one place.’’
