Teen Health

Being healthy is about more than not being sick.  Health means having a ‘medical home’ you know and trust, being able to access support when you need to talk with someone about your thoughts or feelings, and having access to housing, food, education, and fun!

Sonoma County wants to help all families in our community improve their health and well-being no matter what race, ethnicity, sex or gender identity, or socio-economic status.  All residents are welcome and safe to use family services regardless of immigration status.
