Adolescent Medicine


On their journey into adulthood, children go through many social, emotional, and physical changes. The Adolescent and Young Adult Health Clinic, a part of Children's of Mississippi, provides specialty care for teens and young adults ages 10-21. Our doctors provide a holistic (whole body) approach to adolescent care. Adolescence is a time of transition for parents and teens. To help ease this transition, we provide confidential, youth-friendly services while working with family for additional support. Our goal is to help adolescents learn how to understand their own needs, care for themselves, and prepare for a successful and healthy adulthood.
