WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE?
A school based Health Center (SBHC) provides convenient access to comprehensive, primary and preventative physical and mental health services for public school students at the school site. SBHCs keep students in school and parents at work.
WHY ON A SCHOOL CAMPUS?
Students spend a significant portion of their day on school grounds. SBHCs are accessible, convenient, encourage family and community involvement, reduce student absenteeism, reduce parental leave from work for doctor visits, and work with school personnel to meet the needs of the students and their families.
1991—Governor Buddy Roemer—Adolescent School Health Initiative, which authorized Office of Public Health to encourage the development of comprehensive school-based health centers in public schools.
