Access Health Clinic

Access Health Clinic is finding there is a demand for behavioral health services among the 7th & 8th graders. We are publicizing these sessions within the school as “Teen Talk”. It’s group counseling sessions that we would like to form to help children dealing with similar issues (depression, stress, anxiety, relationships, bullying, etc.). We are asking that students “sign up” in the health center if they are interested. The sign-up sheet will be kept with our clinical staff. Also, children will be contacted in school by Melissa Laneaux, our social worker, to see what issues they are dealing with.

Don't forget that if you need to get your child’s immunization records updated, and we have flu shots if needed.
