Central Valley School-Based Health

We convene school-based health care providers and advocates from across the Central Valley to share best practices and support expansion of school-based health centers.

Central Valley School-Based Health Coalition meetings are a great place to learn about building partnerships, increasing service utilization, working better with schools, and other questions you may have about starting and expanding primary and mental health care for students at school.

For more information on attending a meeting, please contact Heather Berg, Central Valley Coordinator.
