NorthPoint Health & Wellness CenterNorthPoint’s commitment to providing comprehensive, high quality health care does not only apply at its Penn Avenue location, but also to providing services through it’s the school-based clinic located at North High school.

While Teenwise Minnesota does not provide services directly to teens, they provide resources they think may be of interest to teens.
