What are the benefits of SBHCs?

School-based health centers reduce barriers that have historically prevented youth from seeking the health services they need including accessibility, cost, transportation, concerns about confidentiality, and apprehension about discussing personal health problems. Since the SBHC is located on or near school property, students can receive health care services and return to learning in their classrooms. Additionally, parents do not need to take time off work to transport the sick student to a doctor.
