Introduction: Solutions that can be done to overcome reproductive health problems in adolescents include increasing access to health services, especially reproductive health education. By increasing the participation of youth/students (especially health students) who play a role in peer educators, It is hoped that it can help adolescents in discussing and dealing with problems faced, especially reproductive health. For this reason, it is necessary to prepare students as peer educators by developing students' self-awareness of their effectiveness as counselors. This study aimed to evaluate health communication skills through the Self-awareness approach of students as prospective health workers.
Methods: This research design is cross-sectional with a questionnaire instrument and a Chi-Square analysis test.
Results: The results show that most of the respondents feel nervous when speaking in front of the group, most still feel shy, pay less attention, are very worried about other people's thoughts, and do not give a good impression, respondents find it difficult to work when being watched by others, and almost all respondents need time to adapt to new situations and are still looking for an identity.
Conclusion: It is necessary to develop a self-awareness approach with the hope that students are called to know, acquire, use, and adapt basic health communication skills as counselors so that they can effectively overcome problems that arise regarding reproductive health in adolescents.
