Results / Impact

More than 7,500 students visit our Wellness Centers each year. In 2013, the top three services used most by students visiting the Wellness Centers were medical services (49% of all youth served by the Initiative), case management (32%), and behavioral health counseling (29%). Case management is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation, care coordination, evaluation, and advocacy for options and services to meet a student’s comprehensive health needs.

Simply stated, wellness works. Eighty-seven percent of students know there’s an adult in the Wellness Center who really cares about them.

  • 93% improve their health and well-being*
  • 78% feel better about themselves
  • 94% reduce their use of tobacco, alcohol or other drugs**
  • 64% do better in school
  • 82% make new friends
  • 76% come to school more often
*among students trying to improve their health
**among students attempting to reduce their substance use
