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.
The California School-Based Health Alliance is proud to announce Trauma in our Schools: Strategies for Making Our Schools More Trauma Informed learning series for educators, clinicians, school-based health providers, and other professionals working with young people in the Central Valley.
Save the Date! Our upcoming convening for the Central Valley on trauma-informed approaches and mental health will take place on October 26, 2018 in Fresno. Location TBD. Sign up for our newsletter and be the first to learn when registration opens for this free event!
Early Childhood Initiative
This collaborative increase the impact of school-based health centers (SBHCs) on advancing early childhood development and third grade readiness for children in the region by:
- Establishing a vision to promote student success by the third grade in partnership with schools, medical providers, and community organizations.
- Sharing strategies with medical providers and educators to support at-risk students from kindergarten to third grade.
- Helping school health staff engage parents and children to promote early childhood academic success.
We welcome early childhood providers from both Tulare and Fresno Counties to join with SBHCs from the Central Valley to participate in this collaborative.
