what is THE school-based health center?
The Maine Township School-Based Health Center (SBHC) is available to ALL students in District 207 (Maine West, Maine South, Maine East and Frost Academy).
The SBHC is located at Maine East High School and is a partnership between Maine Township High School District 207 and Advocate Medical Group, in affiliation with Advocate Lutheran General Hospital. The goal of the SBHC is to improve the physical and emotional health of students attending Maine East, Maine South, Maine West and Frost Academy.
The SBHC is a comprehensive primary care program located at Maine East and linked to community-based services. The District 207 SBHC is one many across the country. A SBHC provides medical and mental health screenings and treatment for young people who might otherwise not have access to primary care. School-based health centers have proven to be successful vehicles for addressing the challenges of adolescent health care. They are designed to be accessible, affordable, confidential, and teen friendly. More information on school-based health centers can also be found from the School-Based Health Alliance and EverThrive Illinois.
The District 207 SBHC is open Monday through Friday during regular school hours.
In order to be able to receive services from the SBHC, each student must have a consent form on file that has been signed by a parent or guardian. Learn more here about accessing care at the SBHC as well as fee and insurance information.
The SBHC is separate from the health office at each school that attends to students’ health needs throughout the school day and school year.
