ACT for Youth

Providing Health Care to Adolescents

Health care professionals who serve adolescents know that members of this age group have their own particular needs and concerns. In this section, we connect to research, professional development opportunities, tools, and other resources to help health care professionals work well with, and promote the optimum health of, their adolescent patients.
