Connecticut Association of 
School Based Health Centers

Through advocacy, education and networking, the CT Association of School Based Health Centers positions SBHCs as leaders in the broader healthcare system for CT’s children and adolescents.

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 system of care for children and adolescents, providing physical, mental health, and oral health services to over 44,000 students annually in 26 communities.
