Developer's Description

The Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center (MSAHC) was created more than 45 years ago specifically to serve adolescents by helping young people access the services they need to make responsible, informed decisions about their health care and their lives. Today, the Center stands as the largest and most comprehensive program of its kind in the country and as a successful model for other adolescent focused health care efforts. MSAHC offers a comprehensive array of medical and reproductive, and mental and dental health services, plus prevention, health education, and support services. Its multidisciplinary team of physicians, physician assistants, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nutritionists, health educators and other health professionals strive to help young people become full and responsible partners in their health care, which is demonstrated in the Centers lower rates of teen pregnancy, substance abuse, untreated mental health issues, and learning differences.
