PATCH Recommended Resources!

We believe youth need and deserve a well-rounded support system. So, as part of our mission we try to connect young people with youth-friendly, health-related resources! Below is a list of some of our favorite youth-friendly resources related to mental health, sexuality, gender identity, accessing and understanding health care, and general health and wellness. Our hope is that teens, as well as their support people (like parents, guardians, teachers, coaches, providers, and so many more) will find these resources helpful!
