THE county council has released their new Public Health Newsletters targeted at improving the health of children and young adults.

Cumbria County Council have released their new 5-19 Public Health Newsletters that will be produced for every school term, each one focusing on a different health 'topic'.

The first one discusses key areas around mental and physical health.

The 5-19 Public Health service is aimed at lifestyle improvement, through maintaining and promoting mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.

Their key priorities are to encourage healthy weight, emotional health, digital wellbeing and to address risk taking behaviour, all issues which impact on the health of the children in Cumbria.
