We are a non-profit social service agency located in New Castle County whose mission is to help people improve their lives and life prospects. Our priorities are clear ~ to provide services that will enable families to build on existing resiliencies to become healthy individuals and contributing partners within our community. We look forward to working with you and the students of Brandywine.
Adolescents are typically a medically underserved part of our population. They need an accessible source of care sensitive to their developmental and emotional needs. Schools are an ideal setting for adolescents to receive preventive health services. Having on-site health services and education will help increase school attendance and improve the student’s ability to concentrate in class. School-Based Health Centers help teens overcome many obstacles to receiving good health care such as lack of transportation, inconvenient appointment times, or worries about cost and confidentiality.
Brandywine High School's School-Based Health Center is staffed by friendly, caring and licensed professionals. It is their goal to provide comprehensive medical and mental health care, treatment and health education to promote positive physical and mental health. The School-Based Health Center will work closely with your primary healthcare provider to create a health care resource you can rely on. If you have not yet found a primary healthcare provider, the School-Based Health Center can help you locate one.
