Healthy Teen Network believes it is the youth most disengaged from our usual systems of care and ultimately those most in need of positive messages and support. We believe it is our duty to find these young people and use any means possible to support their healthy development and transition to adulthood. We recognize the challenge of doing so, but nevertheless the responsibility is ours. We must find creative approaches that reach youth where they are and engage them in meaningful terms. This means developing new partners and messages and stretching beyond our usual delivery settings.
