What does healthy look like?

Resources to help professionals have conversations with young people about healthy and unhealthy relationships

Professionals working with young people are in a unique position to support them to have healthy relationships before they harm or are harmed. They can also be there to support and speak to a young person if they are worried about their relationship.

We developed this resource pack to help professionals working with young people aged 13 to 21 to start conversations about relationships and explore what healthy looks like.

It builds on research and development work that was done in relation to boys and young men. However gender-neutral language is used as far as possible, so it can be used by practitioners working with young people of any gender.
