PureView Health Center established a school-based health center in East Helena by partnering with Intermountain and the East Helena School District. As part of the project, they developed a business plan and began offering primary and behavioral health care services to students and community members. Staff from the school-based health center also worked with the Office of Public Instruction to identify ways to support a positive school climate and implemented multi-tiered systems of support. Services started in May 2019, and student use of the clinic has steadily increased each month. With a robust business model in place, the school-based health center will continue to offer primary care and behavioral health services to the students of three East Helena elementary schools and one middle school.
