About Raising Healthy Teens

Raising Healthy Teens is a program developed for parents of school-aged youth in South Orange County, California, by Mission Hospital, a ministry of Providence St. Joseph Health. The program is part of a three-year strategic initiative to reduce underage substance use in our community.

Raising Healthy Teens aims to provide facts and relevant resources you can use for real-life parenting supporting our belief that positive encouragement and interactions with engaged parents, along with other caring adults, have the greatest impact on healthy youth development.

Caring for Our Community

As a ministry founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, Mission Hospital lives out the tradition and vision of community engagement established hundreds of years ago when the Sisters were first formed in Le Puy, France in 1650. Our mission is to extend the healing ministry of Jesus, in the tradition of the Sisters of St. Joseph, to continually improve the health and quality of life of the people in the communities we serve.  Community Benefit is the cornerstone of who we are as a ministry to meet the needs of the community, with an emphasis on the poor and vulnerable.
