SCHOOL-BASED HEALTH CENTERS

Wheeler and the Bristol Public Schools have partnered to expand access to health services for students and their families. New school-based behavioral health clinics employ a national cognitive behavioral intervention model to help students address trauma-related issues, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and behavioral health issues, and provide other evidence-based interventions to address an array of problems, including anxiety, depression, academic and peer challenges, and more. Linkage to other services in the Bristol community, including assistance with SNAP enrollment and connections with primary care at Wheeler's Family Health & Wellness Center, and a broad continuum of outpatient and community-based levels of care, also are provided. A Wheeler clinician supports each school location.
