What is a school-based health center? A school-based health center (SBHC) provides age-appropriate clinical health care services on or near a K-12 school campus.
SBHCs are (1) located at or near a school or schools, (2) organized through school, community, and health provider relationships, and (3) provide age-appropriate, clinical health care services on-site by qualified health professionals. A school-based health center may provide primary medical care, behavioral health services, or dental care services on-site or through mobile or telehealth.

What does CSHA do? We:
Help schools and communities start SBHCs
Ensure high-quality SBHCs through education and training
Advocate for public policies to support SBHCs
Raise the visibility of SBHCs so they are valued by the public
Support youth engagement and healthy youth development
