Kids at schools across the state get increased access to quality health care with every new school-based health center (SBHC) that opens.
SBHCs are usually located directly on a school campus and provide primary care like any health clinic. They are typically staffed by nurse practitioners, nurses, mental health providers, as well as part-time physicians and medical students. Services are provided at no or low cost. No one is refused service for inability to pay.
SBHCs across California provide elementary, middle, and high school students with easy access to health care. Many SBHCs also offer dental care, mental health care, leadership programs, after-school programs, and even have gardens for growing fresh produce.
Here you can see what is happening at California’s SBHCs. Don’t see your SBHC? Tell us about your SBHC here.
