The SHA programs embrace the following four objectives:

  • To develop, operate and evaluate models of school-based health and mental health care which promote preventive health strategies and improve access to health care and mental health services for students in WS/FCS;
  • To replicate and fund effective models of school-based and school-linked health care at additional sites;
  • To develop service, program, advocacy, and/or research initiatives that address specifically those conditions and issues prioritized by the SHA’s community and school advisers (as outlined in our Strategic Plan and briefly summarized below);
  • To serve as the School Health Advisory Council for WS/FCS.
