YTH Enhanced Discovery: Youth, Digital Health, and School-based Curricula

YTH is partnering with Peer Health Exchange (PHE) to better understand the needs of youth and young adults and how they interact with online resources and school-based health curriculum. YTH is conducting an enhanced landscape review consisting of a comprehensive literature review of over 180 articles, expert interviews, and a digital scan of current technology that supports digital sexual health, substance abuse, and mental health education. The culmination of YTH’s research coupled with community consultations and inspiration workshops with 40 youth throughout two national sites will provide the foundation to develop a tech-based platform centered around educational health resources for youth.

NEXT is a mobile responsive website to facilitate access to preventive services, including STD prevention, sexual health resources, and other social services for youth exiting supervised care systems (YESCS) like foster care and/or the juvenile justice system.
