At a time when rates of sexually transmitted infections among young people are high and one in 20 under 18s in Bristol become pregnant every year, the film for NHS Bristol dispels common myths about sexual health.
The film produced for Bristol Link highlights young people's views and concerns about health services and has given them the chance to offer their ideas for improvement.
Fifteen young people, working in two groups, attended weekly workshops and planning sessions to decide the content and style of each film before carrying out an intensive week of filming at locations across Bristol during October half term.
Anne Colquhoun, Teenage Pregnancy Strategy Coordinator for Bristol, said: "We've been working hard to improve sexual health services for young people. There are 4YP services across the city, meaning that young people shouldn't need to travel far to visit and all our services are confidential and free.
"Hopefully this film will give young people an insight into what is available to them and make them feel more confident to use the services on offer."
Bristol LINk development worker, Caroline McAleese said: "It has been great to have the chance to work with Knowle West Media Centre to offer young people the rare opportunity to have a say in how health services can be more user friendly and appropriate for their needs".
