Quality health care for students is a right.
Healthy children grow into healthy adults, which is why CASBHC focuses on improving health care for students. Our health care advocacy group works with partners, offers resources, and sponsors initiatives designed to boost the number of school-based health centers. Through these health facilities, we also expand access to health care for young people. Reach out to us for additional information.
Connecticut's school-based health centers have been delivering comprehensive health care to students in schools for 30 years, where they spend 25% of their day. Today, there are more than 100 school-based health centers in the state, and the number keeps growing each year. The centers have become part of the essential care system for children and adolescents, providing physical, mental health, and oral health services to over 44,000 students annually in 26 communities.
All children and adolescents are healthy and achieving at their fullest potential.
The Connecticut Association of School-Based Health Centers is a state affiliate of the School-Based Health Alliance.
