School-Based Health Program

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.

HFHS has earned the reputation as a national leader in school-based health care 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.

The following Henry Ford school-based health centers are supported by Henry Ford Health System, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services grant funding, public/private insurance revenue and other grants.
