2017 Youth Health Literacy Guide- PDF

The New Mexico Alliance for School-Based Health Care, as a contractor for the New Mexico Public Education Department, GRADS Plus grant, has created and collected a series of tools to increase the health literacy of young people who are pregnant/expectant and parenting. These tools may be useful directly for these young people or for adults who support them (e.g. teachers, health care providers, etc.). The goal of these documents is to assist in guiding young people as they navigate, for themselves and their children, the complicated U.S. health care system. These tools may be of use to any young person learning about health care navigation.


Documents for GRADS and SBHC Collaboration

School-based and health centers and the GRADS program staff can collaborate in many ways that support the best health and academic outcomes for expectant and parenting teens. The following documents describe and support best practices in the field that other SBHCs and GRADS programs may wish to replicate to support their young patients and students and their families.
