Teen Confidentiality

Please call if you have questions: 360-385-9400

In Washington State, there are special laws that protect teen confidentiality. Anything you say about sex, drugs, and feelings in our clinics is confidential unless you give us permission to share it.

Teens are able to receive birth control, STI screenings, pregnancy testing and get answers to question, and mental health services, all without having to contact a parent or guardian.

We do have to involve others to help if:

  • You are being abused (physically and/or sexually)
  • You are being neglected
  • You are going to hurt yourself or someone else
  • You are under 14 and having sex with someone 17 years old or older
  • You are under 16 and having sex with someone 20 years old or older
