Our mission is to enhance the physical and emotional well-being of adolescents, especially low-income and minority adolescents, by promoting access to comprehensive, interdisciplinary physical, behavioral, and reproductive health care. The National Alliance supports models of care that incorporate a positive youth development philosophy and operate in collaboration with schools and community-based health promotion initiatives. We also seek to ensure that all adolescents have insurance for the services they require.

People with intellectual disabilities can benefit from individualized sexuality education. Information about how to make safe choices will leave them less vulnerable to unplanned pregnancies, sexually transmitted infections, rape and other abuses. Providing people with positive, healthy sexuality messages encourages appropriate behavior and increases self-esteem.

Planned Parenthood of Maryland offers one-on-one sessions that are tailored to meet the needs of each client. Possible topics include:

  • Boundaries
  • Puberty
  • Hygiene
  • Public versus private behavior
  • Anatomy
  • Birth control
  • Preventing sexually transmitted infections
  • Dating and relationships

*All one-on-one clients must present a valid ID. There is fee of $50 per hour-long session.*
