Your Health Service Supports Children and Families in the East Riding

Published: 06 April 2022 to 31 December 2098

Our Your Health Prevention and Lifestyle Service would like families in the East Riding to know that their services are now available to support the health and wellbeing of children and young people.

While Your Health services are increasingly popular amongst the adult population, the team believe it’s equally important to ensure that local families are aware of the support they and their children could receive as part of their free services.

With the national increase in health problems in young people, including obesity, smoking and mental health, the team are based in the local community and are ready and willing to help you and your family spring into a healthier lifestyle.

As part of this offering, the service is available to children and young people over the age of 8 years old, to provide motivation, guidance and support within four key areas:

Healthy Habits

Smoking cessation, vaping, and alcohol abuse

Healthy Lifestyle

Physical activity, healthy eating and moving more

Healthy Mind

Emotional Wellbeing, relationships, anxiety, and stress

Healthy Routine

Sleep hygiene and oral health

Ryan Nicholls, Team Leader at Your Health, Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust, said:

“Having delivered Health Trainer care for over 15 years in the East Riding, it’s been increasingly apparent that our support to adults could also be extended to children and young people.

We’re proud to be able to offer this increased scope of services to a wider demographic in the local community, continuing our efforts to raise awareness of the benefit of a healthy lifestyle, not only as an individual but also as a family unit.”
