            With Mind Your Teens, we want to attract interest in how the teenage brain works. The idea is that the film series should be used in science education in secondary and senior schools. The film series should also be accessible to parents, other adults who interact with teenagers, and teenagers themselves. Participants in the series include researchers at universities in Sweden, the United Kingdom, the USA and China.

            AstraZeneca has initiated Mind Your Teens to support the “Young Health Programme”, which is a global community investment programme to improve the health of disadvantaged young people.

            The film series with associated material was produced in 2012.
