Health & Wellness

Physical Health

Healthcare is a basic human need, but also one of the hardest to find when you’re on the street. Through a partnership with Healthcare for the Homeless, you can get your basic health care needs met at YouthLink, including:

  • Birth control
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Immunizations
  • STD testing and treatment
  • Strep tests
  • Injury and illness check-ups

To find out when our clinic is open, check out our Youth Opportunity Center calendar, or call our front desk at 612-252-1200.

 

Mental Health

Need someone to talk to? We have staff at YouthLink who can help with short-term assistance or regular on-going appointments. We can help if you:

  • Need someone to talk to
  • Consistently feel down
  • Are experiencing or have experienced abuse
  • Face family and friend conflicts
  • Are feeling suicidal

We’ll also help you with referrals for psychiatric appointments and information you might need about medications.
