Adolescent Health

Welcome to South Carolina’s Adolescent Health Connection

In South Carolina, we believe that:

  • Young people are valuable members of our state
  • Young people should be as safe and healthy as possible
  • Young people want to make choices that positively affect their current and future health, safety, and well-being
  • Young people desire support and guidance in making positive choices

group of youthAt DHEC, our hope is that:

  • All youth are raised in positive environments, with caring adults who nurture and promote their health and development
  • All youth feel safe and supported
  • All youth are positively engaged in the lives of their families, peers, and community
  • All youth have timely access to quality health, education, social, and other community services
  • All youth thrive during their adolescence
