School-Based Health Program

schoolbasedhealth1

The School-Based and Community Health Program (SBCHP) is one of the many ways Henry Ford Health System (HFHS) supports the community surrounding Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. Based on the belief that both physical and mental health are essential for a student’s success, SBCHP has operated school health centers in Wayne County (Detroit and Highland Park) and Macomb County (Warren and Mt. Clemens) since 1995.

Healthcare services at school

HFHS has earned the reputation as a national leader in school-based healthcare delivery, and actively works to advance state and federal legislation for school-based and school-linked health centers. Our sites serve young people in schools where they spend most of their waking hours and where they are open to learning. At the school-based health centers, young people ages 4-21 have easy access to primary care and behavioral health services, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.
