Unhealthy lifestyles can have a damaging effect on quality of life; by contrast being active and healthy is a significant contributor to overall wellbeing.
To encourage positive and healthy lifestyles we will:
6.1. Encourage young people to establish balance in their lives and reach a healthy level of engagement in activities;
6.2. Support young people to engage in physical activity and emphasize its connection to and impact on, mental health;
6.3. Work with the Department of Health to encourage good nutrition and exercise habits in young people.
