Teen Health Mississippi has created a variety of resources for teens learning about, advocating for, or choosing to practice safe sex, including the free Safe Sex With ME. kit. We can also recommend additional outside resources on sexual health for teens to expand your knowledge.
Choose Your Method
There are lots of ways to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), but which method is right for your body and lifestyle? Choose Your Method is an online contraception and STI prevention tool to help you filter through options based on your needs, how to access them, and how they work.
Make a Difference
You can be a part of the change when you use your voice. Join our youth programs to get involved advocating for change in sexual health and education for other teens.
LinkedUp is a Teen Health Mississippi program that helps connect students transitioning from high school to healthcare services as they go on to college or whatever their plans are after high school, including going to work or entering the military.
Find Resources for Expecting & Parenting Youth
As part of the Pregnancy Assistance Fund, we created resource guides for expecting and parenting youth in the Jackson Metro and southeast region of Mississippi. They include details on your rights, resources available in your county, and tips for taking care of yourself.

Additional Resources for Teens
We didn’t create the following resources about sexual health and education, but many of the teens we’ve worked with have found them useful.
Bedsider is an online support network for people using or interested in using birth control. The website includes a wealth of information about birth control and encourages you to take an active role in your sexual health.
Sex, Etc. offers honest and accurate information on sexual health. Their resources include a magazine and blog exploring personal stories from other teens and timely sexual health topics, plus forums to connect with other teens and opportunities to get involved with advocacy.
Fact Not Fiction, a project of The Women’s Foundation of Mississippi and the Mississippi State Department of Health, provides medically accurate information about sex to Mississippi teens. They partner with nurses at the University of Mississippi Medical Center to ensure accurate information and advice.
Advocates for Youth works alongside young people advocating for progress on issues like HIV, sex education, emergency contraception, and more. They encourage youth participation and awareness on these issues.
