SERVICES CURRENTLY AVAILABLE

Due to COVID 19, we’ve suspend all in person events at this time, but that doesn’t mean we’re not still here for you! We’re filling our Instagram and Facebook with resources to keep you happy, healthy and entertained while we’re all working together by physically distancing to protect our community and our world.

If you’re a teen who is struggling with staying connected, staying on track, or just need someone to talk to during this time, schedule a free virtual appointment with one of our health coaches. You can talk on the phone or video chat, as often or as little as you’d like.

The Center for Health and Prevention has suspended in-clinic services, but is offering drive-in style services for contraceptives, emergency contraception (Plan B and Ella), treatment medications and some testing services, all without ever leaving your car! Give them a call at (805) 489-4026 in Arroyo Grande or (805) 544-2478 in San Luis Obispo for more information. 

Feel free to reach out to teenwellness@capslo.org for anything related to teen health and wellness.
