3. Sexual Health Information for Teens: Health Tips about Sexual Development, Human Reproduction, and Sexually Transmitted Diseases, by Deborah A. Stanley, Hardcover, Omnigraphics
The teen years can be a minefield of confusing and embarrassing experiences, with transitions in every aspect of life: interacting with family, socializing with friends, and coping with a school workload and perhaps a first job. Add to this burden the need to endure the physical changes that come with puberty and young adulthood. Teens often feel uncomfortable discussing these changes with adults and may be especially hesitant to approach parents or teachers with questions about sexual health. Yet many teens do need guidance in understanding the reproductive-health issues they face, whether or not they are personally sexually active. This volume of the Teen Health Series provides information about all aspects of sexual health, from what's normal and what's not during puberty to facts about sexually transmitted diseases. Also addressed are questions about hygiene, diseases of the reproductive system that are not sexually transmitted, pregnancy and contraception, and societal issues.

Tragically, an estimated two-third of all young people with mental health problems are not getting the help they need. This title in the Teen Health Series provides teenagers with needed information about the causes of mental health problems, warning signs, and treatment options. It also provides tips on such topics as developing a positive self-image, making and keeping friends, understanding emotional development, handling anger and stress, and overcoming trauma. Directories of resources, including toll-free telephone numbers and Internet addresses, are also provided.
