Children, Youth, & Teens Overview

Children's Health

Your child's health includes physical, mental and social well-being. Most parents know the basics of keeping children healthy, like offering them healthy foods, making sure they get enough sleep and exercise and insuring their safety.

It is also important for children to get regular checkups with their health care provider. These visits are a chance to check your child's development. They are also a good time to catch or prevent problems.

Other than checkups, school-age children should be seen for

  • Significant weight gain or loss
  • Sleep problems or change in behavior
  • Fever higher than 102
  • Rashes or skin infections
  • Frequent sore throats
  • Breathing problems

Description: 

For the second year in a row, as part of National Substance Abuse Prevention Month, ONDCP is encouraging partners across the country to join us in celebrating the second annual National Above the Influence (ATI) Day. This year, the flagship ATI event will take place in Washington DC on October 17th. On that day and in the weeks leading up to the 17th, community partners from all around the country will participate in a variety of youth-focused activities that place teens at the heart of this national celebration. In addition to the activities happening around the country on the 17th, four featured partners and their youth in Texas, California, New York, and Florida will be visited by ONDCP officials - each of these areas will showcase their teens in a variety of customized, teen-centric activities and performances in concert with the main event in Washington, DC. Please encourage your community’s youth organizations to get involved in National Above the Influence Day 2013. Visit www.ATIpartnerships.com for more information on how to join the National ATI Day activities webinars, and how to vote for the winning “Made by Me National Challenge” video submission.
