School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) are health clinic sites sponsored and managed by Community Health Centers. A range of services are offered to children, adolescents and the school community. SBHCs are housed within a school site. The SBHC provides preventive and immediate care, behavioral health services, health education, and sometimes dental care. Most SBHC services are provided during the school day. Referrals to other health care providers are available as needed.
West Virginia’s SBHCs have been providing easily accessible and cost effective care to school-age children for over eighteen years. SBHCs are well accepted by school communities and have ongoing partnerships with county school systems. New sites are opening regularly.
