Teen Wellness Program
Neighborhood Healthcare’s Teen Wellness Program has been specifically designed to provide both health-related and vocational support and education for teens. The Teen Wellness Clinic is based on three key areas of mentoring:
Teen Clinic - Teens are seen by medical staff in a confidential setting. Teens are often known as the “invisible patient” because they do not go to a doctor for regular appointments between the ages of 12 and 20, missing out on needed immunizations and health maintenance. Educational
Classes - Teens receive health-related education for topics that are relevant in their day to day lives. Topics can include: Nutrition, Substance Abuse, Healthy Relationships, Depression, Resume and Employment Preparation.
Computer Lab - Teens have access to supervised computer use for educational and vocational purposes. Volunteers/Interns are available to assist with after-school homework, researching options for college or financial aid, preparing resumes, and improving computer skills.
