What is a school based health center?

A school based health center is a clinic located on a school campus operated by qualified mental and physical health professionals.

Who works there?

The SBHC team includes a nurse practitioner, mental health counselors and medical assistant. Medical staff provide comprehensive physical health services to help meet the holistic health care needs of students. Counselors support students as they return or improve to a higher level of functioning. Students can be affected by grief and loss, family issues, anxiety, depression, anger problems, problems with friends and school.

What about appointments?

During comprehensive distance learning, the SBHC's are open for scheduled appointments only. Services may also be offered by telehealth. To schedule an appointment call Pendleton High School for the Nurse Practitioner and Sunridge Middle School for Mental Health Counselors.

What about consent?

  1. All students need to be registered with the SBHC each school year before services will be provided. To register forms can be picked up in person or mailed. If you would like to also receive dental services, please fill out the dental consent form.
    Paperwork can be returned to SBHC in person, by mail, or faxed. Once forms are received, services may begin at SBHC.
  2. Oregon State Law requires a parent or guardian signature for mental health services for students under 14 years of age and medical treatment under 15 years of age, with exception of family planning information and sexually transmitted disease service. We support and encourage parental involvement in decisions about their student's health care.

What about confidentiality?

Our health services and records are private and confidential and separate from school records. Please click here to see our Privacy Practices Por favor haga clic aquí para ver nuestras prácticas de privacidad

SBHC Satisfaction Survey

Students between the ages of 12 and 19 who visit the SBHC may be asked to complete an anonymous survey after their visit. The survey asks about the student’s satisfaction and experience at the SBHC, as well as some general questions about their physical and mental health status. Students can refuse to take the survey and this will not affect their ability to get care at the SBHC. To see a copy of the survey, please go to the “SBHC Data Requirements” link on http://healthoregon.org/sbhc. If you have questions about the survey, please contact the SBHC State Program Office at sbhc.program@dhsoha.state.or.us
