Teen/Youth Health and Wellness Clinics
There are 11 clinics in the region addressing the unique questions and health concerns that today’s teens have. All clinics are drop-in for youth aged 12 to 25. No appointment is necessary. Services are free and confidential. Some school-based clinics have been relocated to primary health care clinics. Virtual appointments may be available.
