Eric’s 17-year old cousin passed away. The School Based Health Center staff gave him the emotional support he needed to grieve and recover.

  •   Eric’s SBHC helped his constant headaches and stress –  and kept him in school -- healthy  and learning
  •  Emergency Room visits for mental health issues are high cost, fragmented care – SBHCs  save the state  money by intervening early.

Erica has asthma breathing treatments in her School Based Health Center and goes back to class. She no longer needs to rush to the emergency room at night when she can’t breathe.

  •   More than 1,500 nebulizer (breathing) treatments are provided in School Based Health  Centers each year for an average of $100 visit
  •  Emergency department visits for the same treatment would cost at least $800 – SBHCs  save  the state $700 per visit.

TJ’s School Based Health Center dental program gave him his smile and confidence back when they treated his visible tooth decay.

  •   School Based Health Center dental programs save the state money. It cost 10 times more to      manage dental problems in the Emergency Room
  •  Dental pain is one of the top five reasons for chronic absenteeism.

Joey’s migraines were unbearable.  His School Based Health Center gave him the medication he needed to feel better, cope with pain and stress, and stay in school.

  • SBHCs improve academic performance, increase attendance, and reduce dropout rates
  • SBHCs are cost effective and make economic sense
  • SBHCs are highly valued by students, parents, and school staff.
