The 2023 Annual Health Theme is Respect

Each year a relevant youth health issue is chosen as the Act Belong Commit YOH Fest theme.

All YOH Fest productions are to be based around this theme.


Respect is something that everyone recognises as an important value across many facets of life.  But what exactly does respect look like to you and how do you hold yourself and others to a high standard of respect?

Respecting your wellbeing plays an important part of your overall wellness and enables you to function well, have meaningful social connections, positive self-esteem and be better able to cope with whatever life throws at you.

Self respect is about treating yourself with care.  Respecting yourself also prevents you from comparing yourself and your life with other people.  Respect in relationships can also mean that you accept somebody for who they are, even when they're different from you or you don't agree with them - leading to feelings of trust, safety and wellbeing.

Do you believe respecting your mental health is just as important as your physical health?  How do you respect yourself and those around you?

As per our Healthway contract, we must stress that the simulation and brand promotion of alcohol, drugs and cigarettes is STRICTLY PROHIBITED. Failure to abide by this will result in disqualification of your item.
