School-Based Health

The School-Based Health Centers (SBHC) provide culturally and developmentally appropriate health care services in Boston schools. Our services address the medical and behavioral health issues that can interfere with academic success.


SBHCs are currently located in eight Boston Public High Schools.

Our teams include a medical provider, mental health clinician, health educator, and administrative assistant. They work to ensure that enrolled students have access to the health information and services they need.
