STUDENTS’ BILL OF RIGHTS

In the state of Illinois, people who are 12 years old and up can confidentially receive the following services without the consent of a parent/guardian: mental health services, substance abuse care, STI/HIV testing and care, birth control, and contraceptives. 

At Heartland Health Centers, we also believe that students have the right to ask questions about their health, receive accurate and age-appropriate information about their health, and receive healthcare from youth-friendly providers.
