We all like to have fun and take risks when we go on the sporting field, or jump on an exciting ride at the carnival. But there are other risks that can cause you severe physical or mental health problems. Huge risks, that can kill you, are associated with drugs, tobacco and alcohol.

Health and Understanding is a literacy-based series and interactive whiteboard program that helps teachers with these health issues during the last three years of primary school. The series provides teachers and students with the opportunity to explore a range of health topics that are involved in, and required for, a healthy lifestyle.
Written by experienced children’s authors including Hazel Edwards, Goldie Alexander, Alan Horsfield and Wendy St Germain, Health and Understanding is endorsed by the Centre for Hormone Research, a joint department of the Royal Children’s Hospital and Murdoch Children's Research Institute.
