Where do you think a school-based clinic would be best placed? What services should it provide to students? Should mental health be a component of its operation?
The Clatsop County Public Health Department, using a $60,000 grant it secured in August from the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), is planning a School-Based Health Center. The project is in partnership with Astoria School District and designed to improve students’ access to basic medical – and possibly mental health – services closer to the classroom.
