Reasons to visit the Novato Teen Clinic:

  • It’s a place you can ask questions that you might not want to ask your parents or friends.
  • To make sure you are safe and your partner is safe.
  • Many STIs have no symptoms, so getting tested is the only way to know.
  • To get the facts about what works and what doesn’t to avoid STIs and pregnancy.
  • Services are free.

Teens are screened for depression, anxiety, risk of suicide, and substance abuse.  Free counseling and health education are for teens who are stressed or feeling down, or who simply want to get the facts about avoiding pregnancy and STIs.
