GFHS operates School Based Health Centers in several schools in Catawba , Forsyth and Gaston counties.
Catawba and Gaston County
GFHS works in collaboration with the Newton-Conover City School System , the Hickory Public School System, and Gaston County Schools, providing behavioral health care to students in participating elementary and middle schools. Services are provided by GFHS staff Licensed Therapists (LCSWs, LPC, PhD).
Students at participating schools must be enrolled in GFHS’ School Based-Health program to receive services. Parents can save time by completing enrollment forms at home.
In Forsyth County, GFHS partners with The School Health Alliance for Forsyth County (SHA) , integrating SHA’s clinical services and GFHS’ FQHC operations.
SHA operates school-based health centers and programs providing medical and behavioral health services to school aged children and adolescents in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County (W-S/FC) School District. School-based health centers provide services to students, regardless of their ability to pay. Services include comprehensive well-child and adolescent exams, immunizations, diagnosis and treatment of illness or injury, management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes, mental health assessment and treatment, health education, nutrition education and health promotion/disease prevent programs.
