Welcome to CA’s Newest SBHCs

San Antonio High School's New SBHC

Kyla Ehrenreich, PA/MPH, center, and her team are ready to provide quality health care to San Antonio High School’s students.

Kids across the state are getting increased access to quality health care with the opening of several new school-based health centers (SBHCs) this year.

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.

There are 231 SBHCs across California that 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. Check out photos, video, testimonials, and more. Send us your news, photos, and video if your school has an SBHC.

If you would like to start an SBHC at your school please see our tools and resources that can help you get started.
