Supporting critically-needed health services in Colorado schools

School-based clinics place critically needed, comprehensive health services directly in schools where young people spend most of their time, maximizing their opportunity to learn and grow. 


Youth Healthcare Alliance represents and supports school-based clinics throughout Colorado. These clinics provide accessible integrated primary and behavioral health services -- and many offer on-site oral health services. Clinics may also offer other support services including health education, insurance enrollment, and case management.

An Investment in Equity: Prioritizing Communities with the Greatest Needs

Colorado youth experience profound inequities in health and education depending on socioeconomic status, race/ethnicity, and geographic location. We know poverty and other social determinants of health lead to poor health and educational outcomes. School-based clinics prioritize such communities in order to directly invest in health equity through barrier-free and high-quality healthcare services.
