Project Overview

The Colorado Association for School-Based Health Care, in collaboration with four school communities, was awarded a 5-year grant from the Colorado Department of Human Services-Office of Behavioral Health to develop a trauma-informed approach to primary prevention of substance use in schools with school-based health centers (SBHCs), which are clinics that provide integrated health services on school grounds. By focusing on primary prevention, the project goal is to strengthen the continuum of care between the school and the SBHC, and integrate resiliency-focused approaches throughout the entire school community.
