- Find credible health information on topics you care about
Teen Health Hub WA features a list of carefully selected online health information and resources on important health topics teens and young adults have asked us about. Find information on physical health and regular checkups, sexual and reproductive health, mental and behavioral health, dating and relationships, and understanding the health care system.
Every “resource card” contains a link to information, services, or another health resource. Use the tags and filters to find resource cards for different topics. Click on a card to check it out and learn more.

- We make sure resources and information are trustworthy
Our team reviewed every site to make sure the source is reputable, authors are trustworthy, claims are backed up with facts, and the information is up-to-date. Most of these resources were developed specifically for—and often with—teens and young adults. In addition, each resource was reviewed by a member of the DOH Youth Advisory Council – we tagged their favorites so they’re easy to find. It is always important to use good judgment when looking through these resources.
Learning about which resources you can trust can help build your digital literacy. Digital literacy means the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that promote safety and success in the digital world. We vet these resources because we know that it’s easy to look up health information online, and it can also be hard to know what to trust. You will likely find questionable or even false information when looking for answers to your health questions. Learning to identify misinformation or false information is critical to digital literacy. When in doubt, do more research.
We check on each resource every year to make sure it stays up-to-date and meets DOH standards. If you see something that doesn’t seem right, please get in touch. DOH is not affiliated with the organizations listed unless explicitly stated on their website or in the text under a resource card.
