New York School-Based Health Alliance

The New York School-Based Health Alliance represents school-based health centers (SBHC) in New York State. SBHCs exist at the intersection of education and health and are the caulk that prevents children and adolescents from falling through the cracks. They provide care – primary health, mental health and counseling, family outreach, and chronic illness management – without concern for the student’s ability to pay and in a location that meets students where they are: at school.
