Youth Outreach

Shasta Community Health Center offers a wide variety of services that can be used by young adults to help maintain a high level of physical and mental health.

Many young people who are having problems with drugs or alcohol, depression, thoughts of suicide , sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy,  and other issues have been helped by caring professionals in an environment that respects their privacy and dignity.

Some of the programs offered to help young adults are:
