Policy & Advocacy

Communities across New Mexico are supportive of school-based health centers, and many are making it a priority to seek local, state, federal, and philanthropic support to open and sustain SBHCs. Although many communities have made progress in establishing SBHCs, far more children, youth, and families could benefit from school-based health care. The New Mexico Alliance for School-Based Health Care works to impact administrative, legislative, and organizational policies at the local, state, and federal levels that support kids and school health.

Each year, we create a policy agenda, and take positions on relevant legislation, with the goal of advancing health and learning through the expansion and sustainability of SBHCs and school health services.
