Teens tackle the big issues.

YOUNG volunteers will show teenagers "Big Issues Don't Have to be a Big Deal" as they launch a new national sexual health campaign at Eastern Ravens Trust shop in Stockton on Friday.

The campaign, created by young volunteers, focuses on raising young people's self-esteem and confidence around various sexual health issues and pressures.

It aims to encourage young people to communicate openly, value their individuality and become familiar with sexual health advice service Brook as a valuable source of information.

Vicky Watson, service director for Brook Stockton, said: "We are really excited about the launch in Stockton.

"The campaign volunteers have worked really hard on the two-day event and we feel it will help to promote Brook's services to young people living in Stockton-on-Tees and make a real difference in this area."

The Big Issues Don't Have to be a Big Deal event takes place over two days on Friday and Saturday between 9.30am and 4.30pm.

It will include a whole host of entertainment including local performances, fun activities and giveaways, the chance to win an iPod Touch and signed campaign materials by boyband JLS who have supported the campaign.
