Impact and Programs
In 2016, myHealth provided nearly 1,300 clients clinic services in over 4,500 visits. We provided counseling and therapy to over 150 clients in 1,250 sessions. And our community outreach/health educators provided information to over 15,300 attendees in over 600 sessions.
Our program goals for the current year include expanding our marketing and outreach through the use of targeted social media outlets, newsletters, and google ads in order to increase community awareness and ultimately increase client traffic at the clinic. Our educational goals include presenting at new locations and also expanding our parent and adult education programs, specifically targeting adults who work with young people. myHealth's overall goal continues to be to reduce barriers young people face when searching for reproductive healthcare or mental healthcare.
