Engage Youth

The Health Department works to support and engage adolescents in promoting their own health and healthy development.

Create An Adolescent-Friendly Practice

As children move away from childhood toward adolescence and young adulthood, the office space that once was thought of as comforting and fun may seem geared towards little kids.

Having a safe and welcoming place to talk about their needs and feel like they fit is important.
