Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the health of our community by providing health services and information that support all teens and young adults in making responsible and well-informed decisions. Our vision is that one day all young people will be educated and empowered to make responsible decisions regarding their health and relationships.

Description

myHealth for Teens & Young Adults is a 501c3 non-profit organization that began in 1971 when a group of local health care providers, school professionals, law enforcement, church officials, and high school students came together to address the increase in unplanned pregnancies and the emergence of sexually transmitted infections among the youth population in the Excelsior area. In February of 1972, West Suburban Teen Clinic opened its first clinic with one full-time nurse, a Board of Directors, 125 volunteer nurses, 30 volunteer lab technicians and 20 volunteer physicians. Over the years we have expanded our services beyond the medical clinic to include Mental Health services and Educational Programs. myHealth partners with school districts, community organizations and coalitions to meet the growing needs of young people and their families in the areas we serve. In 2012, we changed our name to myHealth for Teens & Young Adults to reflect these changes.
