Let’s Talk: COVID-19 and Accessing Resources (Dallas)

Published on April 10th, 2020

Social distancing guidelines have meant that many health centers have had to reduce services or shift to virtual services for the time being. Because sometimes you may need the support of a medical provider, below you will find a list of adolescent-serving clinics that are still providing in-person or virtual services to young people during this time. If you have a medical emergency, please call 911.

It is also critical that you know what you can expect when you seek out care. Each region has different laws about what minors (young people under 18) can access without their parents’ or guardians’ knowledge/permission. To know what the Minors’ Rights are in Dallas, click here.
