Street-involved youth have complex health needs, but getting the health services they need isn’t always easy. At the Youth Health Clinic, youth can meet with a nurse practitioner and be treated for most minor injuries, ailments or health concerns, or be referred to other medical professionals. The clinic provides young people, ages 16-24, with a convenient and youth-friendly place to get medical treatment, an alternative to emergency room visits. Preventative dental services, such as teeth cleanings, are also offered free of charge.
How to access the program
The Youth Health Clinic operates out of the Downtown Services and Drop-in at 147 Besserer St. The Youth Health Clinic is a walk-in clinic and appointments are first come, first served. A health card is not required
