Free counseling and health education
Each Monday from 1:30 – 5:00, the Novato Teen Clinic offers a free, confidential drop-in clinic for teens ages 12-21 to access reproductive and behavioral health care. We test for pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV. We also provide birth control, condoms, mental health counseling, and pelvic exams for those who are experiencing symptoms.

Teens are screened for depression, anxiety, risk of suicide, and substance abuse. Free counseling and health education are for teens who are stressed or feeling down, or who simply want to get the facts about avoiding pregnancy and STIs. Reproductive health care is provided by Marin Community Clinics and behavioral health care and health education is provided by NYC. All services are integrated and delivered in a seamless manner.
