Healthy Youth Partnership (HYP)
The Healthy Youth Partnership is a collaboration of providers in Austin working on issues related to teen pregnancy prevention and teen parents. Its mission is to provide a forum for service providers and other interested members of the community to exchange information and ideas in an effort to best serve Austin/Travis County female and male adolescents and their families in the areas of: reproductive health, pregnancy prevention, prenatal and pregnancy related services, and parenting services. CFRI’s Associate Director, Dr. Monica Faulkner, leads the professional development workgroup for HYP. For more information, contact Dr. Monica Faulker.
