This toolkit was developed by the Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health in partnership with the Illinois Department of Public Health, the Illinois Department of Human Services, and the Illinois State Board of Education for a variety of professionals, youth leaders, and adults who care.
School personnel, public health staff, and community-based providers such as nurses, counselors, and caseworkers will find current information, cutting-edge approaches, and effective policies and practices that can influence their work with the young people they serve.
The toolkit is based on the premise that if adolescent service providers discuss sexual health in a holistic manner and use the information found in the toolkit to achieve that end, young people will make informed decisions about their own sexual health.
The Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health envisions a world in which all young people use their power to achieve health and well-being in their own lives and for their communities. Please visit icah.org for more information.
