Teen Clinics on the South Coast



For those on the South coast with a teen - A Teen Service is available in Narooma, Bega, Merimbula, Eden and Kiama. Teen Clinic is a free service that provides local teenagers with the opportunity to talk to one of the Teen Service nurses about a range of issues in a non-judgmental environment. The nurses are there to help advise young people on both medical and non-medical issues allowing them to make educated, healthy choices. They have parents who accompany their child to the clinic as well as groups of friends who arrive together supporting each other. Teen Clinic provides an opportunity for local youth to have a confidential chat with one of the Teen Service's qualified and friendly nurses. If your problem falls outside of the nurse's area of expertise you may be referred on to a General Practitioner or other local service providers. Teens may attend Teen Clinic for a wide range of medical and non-medical issues such as:

  • general health

  • STI screening

  • contraception advice

  • mental health issues

  • relationship concerns

  • health education

  • homelessness

  • family issues

Teen Clinic is a free service and all visits are strictly confidential. No appointment is necessary - just turn up on the day!
