Transition: health and relationship
A healthy lifestyle can improve the life and opportunities of people.
Health services in London Borough of Richmond upon Thames are keen to help people to maintain both their physical and mental health.
To do this may include regular exercise, maintaining friendships, eating healthily, taking prescribed medication or taking part in therapies.
For families who have been supported long-term by a paediatrician, moving to adulthood can be difficult as their health care may then be overseen by their general practitioner or a specialist combined adult and health service from an adult community team.
For others transition and health means talking about healthy and safe relationships.
The health and relationships leaflet(pdf, 186KB) will help address these issues and provide advice of where to get help.
