The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between family health culture and the health behaviour of young people, using a cross-sectional survey of 379 children and young adults aged between 14-25 years. Results show that SES, mother’s education, family health culture, internal health locus of control, and self compassion are inter-related in a predictive relationship with healthy behaviour and wellbeing. The study concludes that a focus on empowering families is important to
promote health in young people.
