The Teen Health Center, Inc. provides high-quality, free medical and mental health care where students are every day – in school! Galveston clinics are located in Ball High School, Austin Middle School, and Central Middle School. Students are welcome at any clinic. With an annual consent form on file, parents don’t have to take time off of work or find transportation to take their kids to an appointment. Parents can call or students can make their own appointments. Appointments are typically shorter than 20 minutes and students are not counted absent when seen in the clinic. Some of the services offered include:
- Examination, diagnosis and treatment of both acute and chronic illness
- Immunizations for eligible patients
- Well-child exams
- Well-woman exams
- Treatment of minor injuries
- Participation physicals ($5)
Cognitive behavioral therapy, telepsychiatry, and other evidence-based treatments for a wide variety of mental health issues including:
- ADHD and other behavior issues
- Trauma and stress-related problems
- Grief counseling
- School and family problems
GISD staff are welcome at Teen Health, too! For just $25 staff can take care of their healthcare needs during their off period.
