School-Based Health Centers

School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) are primary care health centers which offer preventive, primary, chronic and mental health care services to students who have a broad range of medical needs.  SBHCs are designed to assure that all students who are enrolled in the school have access to convenient, comprehensive health services in a caring, non-judgmental environment at a health center located in their school building. SBHCs are designed to overcome barriers to health care such as concerns over confidentiality, lack of transportation, inconvenient appointment times, cost, parental loss of time from work, lack of insurance coverage, and general apprehension about discussing health  issues.
