Teen Health Center
Garfield Teen Health Center
Staffed by Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic
The Garfield Teen Health Center (THC) is a safe, confidential place where students from Garfield High School and Seattle Public Schools can receive medical, nutritional services and mental health care. The Teen Health Center promotes how to live healthier lifestyles through education and counseling.
Our goal is to provide quality care that is accessible and convenient for students and their families. Students do not have to change their primary care provider to use school-based health services. Interpretation is always available.
We are a school-based health center run by Seattle Children’s Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic.
