School-Based Health Centers Make Sense: Ensuring All Kids Have Access to the Health Care They Need to Be Healthy and Safe, and to Do Their Best in School. Issue Brief
Children Now
School-based health centers (SBHCs) are an innovative and effective way to address California's severe health care access problem among children. By providing critical health care services to kids in school, SBHCs ensure children get the medical, mental health, and dental care they need to be healthy and safe, and to support their ability to learn. It's clear that learning and good health are entwined: education outcomes improve along with the health of students. For these and other reasons outlined in this brief, offering health services to children where they are--at school--just makes sense.
