If any of your children go to Lewiston High or Middle, Edward Little or Auburn Middle, please read on – great news!
Our School Based Health Centers (SBHCs) help your children succeed in school and in life by keeping them healthy and ready to learn. We deliver quality health care to children and adolescents when they in school. School-based health centers focus on promoting healthy lifestyles and indentifying illness early. This helps prevent more serious illness later on.
School based health centers make it easy for students to get care. Many parents work or do not have an easy way to get their child to and from the doctor’s office when they are at school. School-based health centers solve this dilemma! Our school-based health centers are at Lewiston and Auburn’s middle and high schools.
Each School based health center is staffed by a nurse practitioner and a behavioral health counselor trained to assist with mental health or substance use issues, and an administrative clinical assistant (ACA).
