Date: November 30th, 2016

Healthy Teen Network has developed a new Tool and Guide to support assessing the youth friendliness of services.

Offering youth-friendly services means that clinical services are provided in a way that makes it easy and comfortable for youth to seek out and receive the services they need. Key components of youth-friendly services include confidentiality, and access to a full range of services. Another key aspect of youth-friendly services is that all youth are treated equally. Offering youth-friendly services is of great importance because it can increase utilization of clinic services and have positive impacts on current and future well-being.
