Confidentiality and ConsentConfidential health care means information from the teen’s clinic visit will be discussed only between the teen and the Teen and Young Adult Clinic team. Information will not be shared with parents, family members, friends or anyone else.
Someone must give consent, or permission, for the teenager to receive health care at the clinic. Consent may come from the patient or the parent/guardian, depending on the patient’s age.
Patients 18 years or older can consent for their own confidential health care. Please review our Guide for Patients Who Are Turning Age 18 (English / Spanish PDF).
Under California law, patients 12 to 17 years of age can receive confidential health care without a parent’s consent for:
- Sexually transmitted infections
- Pregnancy-related issues
- Substance abuse treatment
- Mental health concerns
General health care for patients under the age of 18, including sports physicals and illness treatment, requires consent of a parent or guardian. The parent or guardian needs to be present at the first visit; a note is required for subsequent visits.
