Teen Pregnancy Prevention


Mississippi has one of the highest rates of births to teen mothers in the nation.

Becoming a parent before reaching full education and employment means a harder life for you and your child. Often it means permanent underemployment and a new cycle of early parenthood for your child when he or she becomes a teen.

Choose to make a better life for yourself and your children. Look into the resources that help you if you want to delay parenthood, or if you are a teen who already has a child or who is expecting one.
