Students of Windham High School, Windham Middle School and the Charles H. Barrows STEM Academy are able to participate in a comprehensive school based health center program (SBHC), in addition to the regular school health program that is available to all.
This comprehensive program provides in-depth health and mental health assessments through our APRN and LCSW or LMFT who work with affiliation to Windham Hospital and are available in each of the health centers. These services may include routine check-ups, sports, school and job physicals; treatment and follow-up of minor illnesses and injuries; immunizations; weight control; treatment of skin conditions; health education; reproductive health and the diagnosis/treatment of sexually transmitted diseases (ages 12 and over); lab tests; individual, group and family counseling; and drug and alcohol abuse prevention. Referrals for complex health or mental health problems are made to private practitioners or community agencies.
Parental or guardian permission is required for participation. To assist us in the registration process, we ask that you complete the enclosed form, including the information regarding the availability of private insurance or HUSKY programs. This must be completed before your child participates in any services provided at the SBHC at your child's school.
If you are uncertain about participation in the Health Center Program and would like to discuss your concerns, please feel free to contact me at 860.465.2465.
