Attitudes towards breastfeeding among young people in Wigan.

Regis,D Cruickshank,R 2005. Attitudes towards breastfeeding in Wigan. The group least positive were the older females and this must be an unhappy trend for those who want to promote breastfeeding. Rather than blandly recommending more work in schools, we would prefer to urge people to examine the barriers to including breastfeeding promotion work in school and other settings,.

STDs.com: Sexuality Education Online.

Keller,SN La,Belle,H 2005. STDs.com: Sexuality Education Online. This study found that teenagers in the United States frequently used the Internet for sexual health information, but only a few health topics of importance were considered by students to be well covered by the Web sites. Focus group results showed the Web sites failed to answer teenagers' personal questions, and did not provide adequate information on sexual health counseling or the risk of getting reinfected with sexually transmitted diseases,.

Comments about SHEU

(Our) Senior team were very enthused with the rich source of data provided within the reports (and thought that the analyses including within the appendices section of the main reports were really interesting).

Health Improvement Specialist (Children, Schools and Families)

"Many thanks to SHEU for your excellent professional support over the years."

PSHE teacher

"Over the last twenty years you have achieved much. The surveys and subsequent reports have painted the clearest picture we have of what young people are doing and what they think." OFSTED 1998

"We did this last year with Year 8 and 10 and was incredibly useful. It is WELL worth doing and so useful to inform PSHE planning. The safeguarding audit team were delighted that we had done it. The findings are so so interesting.
"The findings are really comprehensive and range from what percentage of year 8 have breakfast in the morning to how many have tried this particular drug, to identity, health and sleep patterns, mental health, citizenship issues....
"It's essential for the PSHE and pastoral curriculum."

PSHCEE coordinator

"I have never looked at myself in this way before." Pupil

"This week I have been working on a major strategy for service design -- it is easy to get solely focussed on hospitals, performance targets, and work force planning -- all very important; but at the same the needs of young people and how we need to work across agencies to address the health needs of today and tomorrow must be recognised. SHEU is founded to do just this."
