Where do young people get information about sex and relationships?

Ideally young people can rely on a parent or trusted adult, educator, or medical provider for this information. Too often, though, their answers come from a quick Google search, friends, significant others, or the media – and those answers can be far from factual.

BrdsNBz Indy serves youth, ages 13 to 19, who live in Indiana.  Young people may send a sexual health question via text message and a trained health educator will respond within 24 hours with a personalized, medically accurate answer.
