SBHC COVID-19 Listening and Learning Sessions This Week

School-Based Health Center (SBHC) COVID-19 Listening and Learning Sessions

The national School-Based Health Alliance invites SBHC sponsor organizations and administrators and SBHC primary care and behavioral health clinicians to join their peers from across the nation to discuss, share, and learn from each other on how SBHCs are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the Alliance does not have all the answers, we want to provide support to SBHCs by connecting like individuals and facilitating peer-to-peer listening and learning opportunities.

Each week, April 28th through May 21st, we will host two listening and learning sessions. We will announce the topic and registration link for each week’s session a week ahead of time. The May 19th and 21st sessions will focus on mental health.

We will record each session and post the archives on our website.
