Adolescent Health Center
The Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center offers a comprehensive, interdisciplinary and integrated model of medical, mental health, and sexual and reproductive health services, plus prevention education and services for healthy lifestyles.
Upon opening its doors in 1968, the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center became the first health service in New York created specifically for adolescents. Today it is the largest, most comprehensive adolescent center in the country, providing high quality care to 10,000 disadvantaged young people ages 10 to 24 in New York City. Most lack insurance or the ability to pay for services despite being of highest need.
Our physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nutritionists, and other professionals address the pressing needs of disadvantaged teens and become valued partners in their lives. We respond immediately, confidentially and for free to teens haunted by issues such as pregnancy, depression, abuse and violence. Our effective intervention reduces the enormous long-term human, economic, and social costs of adolescent problems.
