Teen Health Centers in High Schools
Health care for teens is available at most Seattle
Public Schools high schools. The teen health centers are operated by
Puget Sound Neighborhood Health Centers, with funding support from the City of Seattle's Families and Education Levy.
Health Centers are staffed with school nurses, nurse practitioners, and
mental health counselors. They provide all the services that family
doctors provide and do so in a teen friendly setting.
- medical check ups
- routine and sports physicals
- treatment for acute and chronic illness
- vision/hearing screenings
- dental referral
- lab tests
- education on how to live a healthy life
They also provide mental health
counseling in addition to preventive education on tobacco, alcohol and
other drug use, injuries and violence.
