This Evidence Check will be used to inform development of the ACT Year 7 Health Check which will examine adolescent health and wellbeing in the ACT. It identified validated tools for school-based screening and surveillance of weight status and social and emotional wellbeing of students aged 10-18 years and validated screening tools used in school-based settings for risk factors for overweight or obesity and poor social and emotional wellbeing. The findings will also contribute to development of school-based programs to address these risk factors and provide information and referrals for students at risk of overweight, obesity or poor wellbeing.
