Our site provides quick and easy access to current information and resources about teen health for health care providers that work with adolescents. Please use our material in any way that suits your practice.

We have included a screening system for identifying high risk teen behavior. And we have included resources and referrals to help the clinician take care of high risk behaviors.

  1. A Teen Clinic Visit
  2. Screening for Teen Health Risks. Several versions of teen health screens.
  3. Standards and Guidelines for Teen Health. Local, regional, and national guidelines for teen health care.
  4. Resources for Parents. Educational materials, bibliography, web-based resources, and educational videos for parents and families.
  5. Resources for Providers. Reading materials and web-based resources.
