The School-Community Health Alliance of Michigan (SCHA-MI) is a collaboration of individuals and organizations that represent and support school-based and school-linked health centers and programs. Through our actions, commitment and passion, we support the belief that all Michigan children and youth have a basic fundamental right to access and receive comprehensive primary health care and prevention services.
School-based and school-linked health centers bring health care services to children where they are — in school! It just makes sense. These centers and programs provide quality health care services on or near school property that help students be healthy and succeed in school. They are focused on the prevention, early identification and treatment of medical and behavioral concerns that can interfere with a student’s learning.
To improve and advocate for the health and educational outcomes for children and youth by advancing school-based and school-linked health care.
