Supporting young people to eat healthy and be physically active, tackling the issues important to you
What is Health4Me?
Health4Me is a research study. We are aiming to find out whether taking part in the Health4Me program for 6-months can improve young people’s physical and mental health. Our text messages have been developed with young people for young people! If you take part in the study, you will receive information and advice on areas including diet, physical activity, sleep, mental health, body image and climate and planetary health. YOU get to choose how much you want to interact with the program – you can reply to the messages and receive up to 6 coaching calls with a health counsellor if you like!
Chronic diseases (like heart disease and type 2 diabetes) are the biggest health challenges today’s young people are facing! Your lifestyle behaviours, especially diet and physical activity, can help you maintain a healthy weight and improve your overall wellbeing.
We know it can be challenging to find the information and motivation to get on top of your health and wellbeing, which is why we are conducting a research study to explore the use of text messaging as a method to help you! We want to find out if this program helps young people improve their physical and mental health and also whether it is engaging and acceptable to help you lead a healthier and happier lifestyle.
