HealthShack helps youth in transition take control of their own health, well-being, and future.
HealthShack is the only web based youth controlled health information system across the country. But, it's more than just a personal health record. It's youth designed so you get to decide what information you want stored. Health is a great place ot start. Having your life documents, education, job history in a central place will help you as you transition from a young person to adult.
Everyone needs help sometimes but it can be hard to find resources. Where can you go? Who can you trust? HealthShack Youth Ambassadors have personally checked out local resources and reviewed them. Using the tools on this site you can take control over your health, your well being, and your future.
