LincolnHealth School-Based Health Centers
School-based health centers (SBHCs) help keep students healthy and in school so parents can stay at work. LincolnHealth offers SBHC services at Medomak Valley High School, Boothbay Regional High School and Lincoln Academy. Local SBHCs are staffed by LincolnHealth care team members who evaluate and treat medical conditions such as:
- Coughs and colds
- Strains and sprains
- Ear aches
- Sexual health
- Sore throat
- Well-child checks
Safe and Supportive Care by Trusted Health Professionals
Each school-based health center is staffed by professionals including; licensed clinical social workers (LCSW), nurse practitioners (NP) and a medical doctor (MD) who serves as medical director of operations.
Sometimes, children need to talk with someone who is unbiased, supportive and can offer a fresh perspective. While we encourage students to involve a parent or guardian in their care, questions that teens may have related to drug and alcohol use, mental health, sexually transmitted disease and family planning may not require parental notification or permission.
Behavioral health services are provided at LincolnHealth SBHCs by licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs) and other professionals who are placed directly on school campuses and can help with:
- Relationship problems
- Anger management
- Alcohol or drug use
- Academic struggles
- Gender identity/sexuality concerns
- Family issues
Our team can help make referrals to doctors to help manage chronic illness or for other services a child or staff member may need that are not provided at the center. When needed, we connect students and families with other clinical and community services that are not provided at the school. SBHC staff can also help you find a primary care physician if you don’t have one.
