Kids Health

KidsHealth is the largest and most visited site on the Web providing doctor-approved health
information about children from before birth through adolescence. KidsHealth has separate areas
for kids, teens, and parents - each with its own design, age-appropriate content, and tone.

Safe Kids
SafeKids is a global network of organizations whose mission is to prevent accidental
childhood injury.  SafeKids was founded in 1987 as the National SAFE KIDS Campaign by 
Children’s National Medical Centerwith support from Johnson & Johnson. 


National Inhalant Prevention Coalition
Inhalant use. What is it? Is it really a serious problem? Can it affect my children?
One in five students in America has used an inhalant to get high by the time 
he or she reaches the eighth grade.  NIPC is a public-private effort to promote 
awareness and recognition of the under publicized problem of inhalant use.  

NIDA for Teens
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a component of the National Institutes of Heath
(NIH), created this Web site to educate adolescents ages 11 through 15 (as well as their
parents and teachers) on the science behind drug abuse.  The site delivers science-based
facts about how drugs affect the brain and body so that kids will be armed with better
information to make healthy decisions.

girls health logo
The mission of girlshealth.gov, developed by the Office on Women's Health in the Department
of Health and Human Services, is to promote healthy, positive behaviors in girls between the
ages of 10 and 16. The site gives girls reliable, useful information on the health issues
they will face as they become young women, and tips on handling relationships with
family and friends, at school and at home.
Our tagline is "Be Happy. Be Healthy. Be You. Beautiful."
It focuses on the idea that being yourself—finding what makes you smile
and how to live well—is what makes you "you." And that is beautiful!

Baby and Mind
BAM! Body and Mind is an online destination for kids created by the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Designed for kids 9-13 years old, BAM! Body and Mind gives them the information they need
to make healthy lifestyle choices. The site focuses on topics that kids told us are important
to them — such as stress and physical fitness — using kid-friendly lingo, games,
quizzes, and other interactive features.
BAM! Body and Mind also serves as an aid to teachers, providing them with interactive,
educational, and fun activities that are linked to the national education standards for science and health.

About Teen Depression
Do you find yourself frustrated by a teen who seems to have no energy or motivation,
who sulks around the house or makes angry scenes when you try to get him or her to
"just DO something?".  Depression in adolescents can express itself as irritability, hostility,
and anger, which can often lead to missed diagnosis. About Adolescent Depression
helps educate parents about teen depression and seeking treatment.
