Rise Above – PHE’s social marketing programme which aims to equip 11 to 16 year olds with the skills they need to withstand social pressures and prevent or delay risky behaviour. It co-creates video content with young people which is shared by peers and influencers via a digital hub and social media channels to drive engagements. This content is then used to develop lesson plans for Personal, Social and Health Education classes to promote positive mental health and sexual health and delay and prevent core risk behaviours such as smoking, drinking and taking drugs. By tackling multiple issues, the campaign aims to build resilience, encourage better health literacy and support young people to make choices to reduce risky behaviour and better health decisions.
