Engaging Families

When launching and operating SBHCs, it is important that leaders reach out to families and community members. This page provides resources to help you build and maintain these relationships.

At many of the SBHCs in middle and high schools, youth are the primary stakeholders. Youth engagement enhances quality and operations of SBHCs and is an opportunity for young people to become empowered about their health. Check out our youth engagement resources.

SBHCs and other school health providers strive to respond to the needs and circumstances of their communities and clients. For this reason, cultural humility and language access are critical issues in school health programs. These resources can help school health programs provide culturally appropriate, linguistically accessible care and services.
