TVHC’s Youth Health Services (YHS) Department offers culturally competent, age-appropriate, convenient, and affordable primary care and health education services to adolescents and families through school-based health centers, located at Tennyson High, Hayward High and Logan High schools.

Our school-based health centers are a safe and convenient place for any student to receive the medical and mental health care they need to succeed in school and become productive members of their community. A student who is tired, sick, suffering from asthma, stressed, depressed or scared, often experiences academic performance issues as a result and an increased risk of dropping out of school.

Much like our main community-based health centers, our school health centers advocate holistic health care, paying careful attention to the dynamic relationship between mind, body, and spirit. Our primary objective is to make important health and wellness information more readily accessible to youth and provide an effective tool for them to take control of their own well-being.
