The Youth Council of Bialystok (Poland), in cooperation with the SocLab Foundation, has developed recommendations on mental health prevention. They are based on a diagnosis carried out during the Youth Forum on Mental Health "Youth for Youth" on 13 June 2023. More than 50 male and female students from secondary schools participated. Together, we diagnosed problems in three areas: stress, fatigue, depression. We listened to and recorded the experiences of the young people and their ideas on how they can be supported. We invite you to discuss these solutions. Perhaps you have other ideas? The recommendations were developed by: Representatives of the Youth Council of the City of Bialystok: Bartosz Cieślak, Patrycja Jacewicz, Konrad Ochrymiuk Pawel Potas. From SocLab Foundation: Dr. Katarzyna Sztop-Rutkowska, Michal Lemanski.

How can sun protection skills be taught? What sun protection measures exist and what effects do sunburns in childhood have on health in adulthood? In a virtual series of events entitled "Research cooperation in practice: making population studies useful for the public health service", employees from municipal health offices - the local public health service - discussed which topics are relevant to their work and would benefit from being addressed via the JoinUs4Health platform. One of these topics deals with aspects of health behaviour with the aim of developing measures to strengthen the sun protection competence of the population and to create a collection of sun protection measures in kindergartens and schools.

Heat waves are becoming more and more frequent. The heat leads to increased physical stress, a reduction in well-being and performance, and even heat-related deaths. In a virtual event series entitled "Research cooperation in practice: making population studies useful for the public health service", employees from municipal health offices - the local public health service - discussed which topics are relevant to their work and would benefit from being processed via the JoinUs4Health platform. The aim of this topic is to better understand heat events and their impact on health. In this context, it is particularly important for the public health service at district level to be able to plan and implement measures, activities or even information campaigns at local level as efficiently and specifically as possible. Representatives of the health authorities, scientists and citizens are cordially invited to participate in this exchange!

Diabetes remains a major public health priority due to the steady increase in its prevalence. More than 6% - equivalent to approximately 537 million people in the global population - are affected by type 2 diabetes . Although typically diagnosed in middle-aged people (45-64 years), the prevalence is increasing in all age groups. Equally dangerous can be the pre-diabetic state is an intermediate hyperglycaemic state with elevated blood glucose parameters above normal but below the threshold for diabetes . Such a state is classified as dysglycaemia and is a prelude to diabetes . The incidence of progression of type 2 DM five years after the diagnosis of abnormal glucose tolerance or abnormal fasting blood glucose is estimated to be 26% and 50%, respectively . The natural progression of the pre-diabetic state is insulin resistance and pancreatic B-cell dysfunction, leading to overt diabetes . The prevalence of non-diabetic hyperglycaemia is steadily increasing: 541 million adults (10.6% of adults worldwide) have abnormal glucose tolerance and 319 million (6.2%) have abnormal fasting blood glucose .

Population-based studies provide extensive information on the health of the population and allow specific questions to be answered. In order to better use the results of the studies for the public health service, representatives of the public health service have the opportunity to become part of the scientific process and the research community JoinUs4Health in a series of events organised by the Academy for Public Health. This type of exchange is possible because three European cohort studies - including the SHIP study (Study of Health in Pomerania), which has been active in the Western Pomerania region since 1997 - have opened up for research cooperation with the public health service and other social actors.

Physical activity and sport are pillars of a healthy lifestyle regardless of age. Despite the many benefits of an active lifestyle, seniors move less and less in everyday life, so that their physical performance declines. The project "Fit im Alter" aims to maintain and improve the physical activity of older people and thus their health through structured training offers. The impulses for sport are to be used directly from the middle of the population and a training network is to be created. In the long term, the aim is to strengthen everyday skills and performance and also to improve confidence in one's own ability to perform, to expand the social network and thus to promote active participation in life.
