School-based health centers
The School-Based Health Center (SBHC) program in Columbia County provides children and youth with access to primary care and mental health services in order to have healthy students that are ready to be learn.
There are four SBHCs in Columbia County: Clatskanie SBHC, Sacagawea Health Center in St. Helens, Rainier Health Center, and Spencer Health & Wellness in Vernonia. Students can get health screenings, sports physicals, well-checks, immunizations, and mental health counseling among many other health services.
SBHCs are located on school campuses in order to overcome barriers like transportation and to prevent students from missing school as much as possible. We accept most insurances, but no student will be turned away due to their ability to pay.
