Caring For Our Community

School-Based Health

School-based health centers make going to the doctor as simple as walking down the hall.  When students aren’t feeling well, they may have a harder time learning. They may miss class a lot — and when they are in class, they might have trouble paying attention. Giving kids and teens access to health care at school puts them in a better position to learn. The objective of School-Based Health Centers is to  give students meaningful access to care in a location that is safe and convenient. Onsite health care professionals collaborate with schools to address the broad range of concerns and adverse experiences that affect students’ healthy development.

Kintegra operates School Based Health Centers in several schools in Catawba, Davie, Forsyth and Gaston counties.

SHA  operates school-based health centers and programs providing medical and behavioral health services to school aged children and adolescents in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County (W-S/FC) School District.  School-based health centers provide services to students, regardless of their ability to pay.    Services include comprehensive well-child and adolescent exams, immunizations, diagnosis and treatment of illness or injury, management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes, mental health assessment and treatment, health education, nutrition education and health promotion/disease prevent programs.

The SHA Mission is to improve the ability of students to learn by improving the health and safety of Forsyth county’s school-age children and adolescents and by coordinating and targeting the efforts and resources of all types of community health care providers.

With a team comprising Nurse Practitioners, Licensed Clinical Social Workers  and a Psychiatrist, Kintegra/SHA provides comprehensive medical and behavioral health care  in four school locations:  Mineral Springs Elementary/ Middle schools; Winston-Salem Preparatory Academy, Ashley Elementary  and North Forsyth High School in Winston-Salem.  In addition, SHA’s Mobile Medical Unit  provides similar services on a rotational, part-time basis at several additional participating schools in the county.  The program also includes  an LCSW-driven behavioral counseling program which serves several schools on a rotational basis.
