The health needs of teenagers can differ from the health needs of adults in several important ways. For starters, many people become sexually active for their first time during their teenage years. Teens may also find themselves stressed about their schoolwork, which could affect how much they sleep at night. They may faces choices while hanging out with their friends about whether to try smoking, drugs or alcohol for their first time. They have new hygienic needs. Dating becomes a more serious, high-stakes topic.
The Health Resource Center Program, a program of AccessMatters in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, is administered locally by Hamilton Health Center.
