Health education programme for young people: Preparing for adult life

Nowadays, young people are spending more and more time in front of a computer screen, smartphone or tablet. The Internet gives us access to a lot of information, facilitates communication and entertainment, but on the other hand, it also brings with it many risks that can negatively affect young people's mental and physical health. Therefore, health education for young people should take into account the problems resulting from Internet abuse.

Both excessive use of the internet and its inappropriate use can lead to various health problems. Spending long periods of time in front of a screen can lead to obesity, vision problems, back and neck pain and sleep disorders. Internet abuse can also lead to addiction, social isolation, and emotional disorders such as depression, anxiety or excessive aggression.

Therefore, health education for young people should take into account not only the benefits but also the risks of Internet use. Workshops on responsible and safe use of the Internet should be organised in schools, as well as educational campaigns related to health problems resulting from Internet abuse.

During the workshops, students should be sensitised on what behaviour and content on the internet can harm their health, as well as how to recognise the alarm signals related to internet addiction. It is also important to provide information on ways to prevent health problems resulting from internet use, such as regular breaks from screens, physical activity or a good diet.

Cyberbullying is one of the biggest problems resulting from the abuse of the internet by young people. Educational campaigns should draw attention to this problem and provide young people with information on the negative consequences that can result from engaging in cyberbullying. It is important to point out that every action online has consequences and that those who commit cyberbullying will be held accountable for their actions.

In addition to cyberbullying education, educational campaigns should also focus on the problems caused by excessive screen exposure. Young people should know how to avoid internet addiction and how to use the web safely and responsibly.

All health education activities for young people related to the problems caused by Internet abuse should take place in an attractive and engaging way. It is extremely important to impart knowledge to young people in a way that is accessible and interesting to them, for example through the use of modern educational technologies.

In conclusion, health education for young people should address problems resulting from Internet abuse, such as cyberbullying or online addiction. In schools
workshops and educational campaigns should be organised to teach young people about safe use of the Internet and the consequences of Internet abuse.
