The Connecticut Association of School Based Health Centers is an advocacy and networking organization committed to increasing access to quality health care for all children and adolescents in Connecticut schools.

Connecticut’s school based health centers have been delivering comprehensive health care to students in schools for 30 years -- where they spend 25% of their day.  Today, there are more than 96 school based health centers in the state, and the number keeps growing each year.  The centers have become part of the essential system of care for children and adolescents, providing physical, mental health, and oral health services to over 44,000 students annually in 26 communities.


An investment in CASBHC, is an investment in the health of a child and the future of Connecticut.
