GFHS operates School Based Health Centers in several schools in Catawba and Forsyth Counties.
GFHS works in collaboration with the Newton-Conover City School System providing behavioral health care to students in participating elementary and middle schools. Services are provided by GFHS staff Licensed therapists (LCSW, LCP, PhD).
Newton-Conover 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.
The SHA Mission is to improve the ability of students to learn by improving the health and safety of Forsyth county’s school-age children and adolescents and by coordinating and targeting the efforts and resources of all types of community health care providers.
With a team comprising Nurse Practitioners, Licensed Clinical Social Workers and a Psychiatrist, GFHS/SHA provides comprehensive medical and behavioral health care in four school locations. In addition, SHA’s Mobile Medical Unit provides similar services on a rotational, part-time basis at several additional participating schools in the county. The program also includes an LCSW-driven behavioral counseling program which serves several schools on a rotational basis.
