Your teen, their plan

Your child became a teenager faster than you ever thought possible.

Now what?






A healthy teen is a happier teen

You can’t cure the growing pains of adolescence—but your teen can partner with their doctor to make a custom healthcare plan that includes:

Regular wellness visits

Diet and exercise programs

Behavioral health screenings



Working together

The less your teen shares with you, the more important it is for them to talk to their doctor. The talks they have are confidential. Give them a safe place to discuss their physical, behavioral, social, and sexual health including:

  • Puberty
  • Substance use and abuse
  • Sexuality
  • Behavioral health
  • Social and peer pressures
  • Family issues
  • Emotional problems
  • Learning challenges

Help your teen get the most out of their visit

Let your teenager know what to expect from their annual checkup and help them feel safe exploring:

Growth, puberty, and development

Thoughts and feelings

Friends and family

Lifestyle habits, sleep, exercise, and diet

Vaccines and boosters

Hearing and vision

State of mind and behavioral health
