For Teens

This section will always be a work in progress!

We will update this page content to list useful resources for teens and their parents around common conditions and self-serve online tools.

Teens are entitled to confidentiality. Your physician will make an explicit and evolving assessment of whether or not you can be considered a mature minor. Please talk about confidentiality with your physician and be sure to ask about limitations.
