School Health Clinic

This school year, the Grey Bruce Health Unit (GBHU), in partnership with the Bluewater District School Board, will be introducing the Student Health Centres in all secondary schools. The services will be delivered and coordinated by the school Public Health Nurse (PHN). Confidential health education will be provided one-on-one for students who access the PHN/Student Health Centre.

Health education and services provided will include the following:

  • Healthy lifestyles (nutrition, physical activity, dental health)
  • Healthy sexuality
  • 2SLGBTQ+ resources & support
  • Healthy relationships
  • Tobacco and vaping support
  • Harm reduction education and supplies
  • Health system navigation/referrals to appropriate community agencies/healthcare providers.

Starting in November 2022, the PHN will offer on-site presence once a week at each secondary school. Please note that the frequency of the PHN visits may vary depending on the size and need of each school.

The GBHU is optimistic that this program will be well received and be impactful on the health and wellbeing of our students.
