HHS, ED Unveil Joint Effort on School-Based Health Services

This week, U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra and U.S. Education Department (ED) Secretary Miguel Cardona launched a joint-department effort to expand school-based health services in an effort to ensure children have the health services and supports necessary to build resilience and thrive. Under the joint effort, HHS and ED will provide additional technical assistance, resources, and support to schools on federal funding available for school-based physical and behavioral health services.

As part of the effort, HHS and ED will host a webinar on Wednesday, March 30 at 12:00 pm PT to highlight successful models of health center service delivery in schools, as well as approaches, needs, and opportunities to support partnerships between schools and health centers.
