myHealth for Teens and Young Adults
Online fundraising campaign
For 40 years myHealth for Teens and Young Adults has been providing medical and mental health care and education for the teens and young adults in our community. In 2011, myHealth provided 2,800 teens with no- and low-cost medical services in 7,700 visits to our Excelsior location and our new location in Hopkins. We gave away $1.5 million in uncompensated care to young people in 2011 alone.
In addition to providing direct services, our outreach educators provide health education and parent education presentations in schools, homes, businesses and community locations to 20,000 young people, parents, and community members. Our Becoming Program provides education, support, and assistance to pregnant and parenting teens and young adults. Last year, we provided 140 pregnant and parenting teens with nearly 400 home visits.
Our mission is to provide health care and information services that are comprehensive, confidential, and non-judgmental. Our vision is that one day all young people will be educated and empowered to make responsible decisions regarding their health and relationships.
myHealth is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit providing no- and low-cost medical, educational and mental health services to young people and their families in Hennepin, Carver and Scott Counties. Since opening in 1972, myHealth has become a recognized and trusted advisor to teens and their parents.
