In an effort to address concerns about confidentiality laws, minor consent laws, and reporting responsibilities for healthcare providers, we work to build the capacity of healthcare providers and staff in Mississippi by delivering training on Minors’ Rights to Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare. We have also developed a free online resource for healthcare providers to help clarify minors’ consent and confidentiality rights.

Raising awareness about minors’ rights to sexual and reproductive healthcare services is the first critical step to ensuring that youth have access to youth-friendly healthcare in Mississippi. If you would like to request minors’ rights training or resources for your staff, please email Emily at emily@teenhealthms.org.
