Enhancing School-Based Health Services


School-based health services
(SBHS) are a convenient, powerful,
yet underused strategy to meet
student needs and increase
equitable access to healthcare.
At a time when the nation is com-
bating a youth mental health crisis
and federal education funding is at
an all-time high, state leaders can
do more to leverage federal funding
streams, partnerships, policies, and
capacity building to expand SBHS.
