Sexual health guide for teenagers

Teenagers in Somerset are to be given a pocket-sized guide to sexual health and relationships, funded by the NHS.

The booklet will provide information on local support services and is designed to answer questions young people may be too embarrassed to ask.

NHS Somerset said the Somerset Sex Directory included advice on contraception and treatment for sexually transmitted infections.

The guide will be available from youth services, colleges and clinics.
