Health Care Access in Connecticut

A large number of Connecticut children do not have access to basic medical, dental, and mental health care, including those who live in rural areas and inner cities, as well as those who are uninsured or underinsured.  In Connecticut, teens are the most underserved segment of the population.

 

Many young people experience barriers to the health care they need including cost of services, lack of transportation, and lack of knowledge about available services and the importance of preventive health behaviors.  Bringing health services to students where they spend the majority of their day -- in school -- reduces absenteeism and can lead to greater academic achievement.  In the 2012 CASBHC Student Satisfaction Survey report, more than two-thirds (70%) of students confirmed that they learned new health habits through their visits to the health center.

 

Your contribution will help ensure that children and adolescents continue to have high quality health services available to them right in school.

School Based Health Centers are the solution

SBHCs eliminate obstacles of transportation, scheduling, and economics -- and enable all children to receive the physical,mental health, and dental services they need -- when they need them.  The SBHCs' unique combination of medical care and counseling with strong health education reinforces healthy lifestyles and promotes prevention and early intervention of serious problems.
