   HRSA ' s Health Center Program connects underserved children , adolescents , and their families to quality , affordable health care , including mental health services . Today , the U . S . Department of Health and Human Services ( HHS ) , through the Health Resources and Services Administration ( HRSA ) , awarded nearly $25 million to improve and strengthen access to school - based health services in communities across the country . Awards will support local partnerships between schools and health centers to provide children and youth the comprehens......ive physical and mental health care they need . “When students are healthy , they are able to learn , grow , and thrive , ” said HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra . “Our nation’s youth have endured many challenges navigating the COVID - 19 pandemic , and we are committed to ensuring they have the support they need . Today we’re investing in school - based health care to meet families where they are and make sure children have easy access to care – including mental health support . ”Today’s awards were made to 125 HRSA - funded health centers that deliver comprehensive , high - quality primary health care services to individuals and families through school - based sites in underserved communities . Health centers will use this funding to reduce disparities and improve access to care by increasing the number of young people receiving essential health care , including mental health services . Health centers will also use these funds for activities such as community and patient outreach , health education , and translation support . A recent HRSA study published in the American Medical Association’s journal JAMA Pediatrics found that between 2016 and 2020 , the number of children ages 3 - 17 years diagnosed with anxiety grew by 29 percent and those with depression by 27 percent . As HHS recognizes Mental Health Awareness Month in May , this investment will help provide critical mental health services directly to students on site at their schools . “There is no doubt that the last two years have been challenging for our kids and we need to do all that we can to support their health and well - being , ” said HRSA Administrator Carole Johnson . “By expanding our support for school - based health services , we are creating more opportunities for young people to get the help they need to address both physical and mental health needs that have been overlooked for too long . ”The Biden - Harris Administration is committed to ensuring children have the physical and behavioral health services and supports they need to build resilience and thrive . Today’s announcement advances the joint effort of Secretary Becerra and U . S . Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona to expand school - based health services , as outlined in their joint letter to Governors in March 2022 . It is also part of the ongoing HHS - wide effort to strengthen our nation’s mental health . The $25 million awarded today builds on the $5 million investment in school - based care that HRSA awarded to health centers in September 2021 to expand access to school - based services . One in nine children in the United States accesses primary health care through a HRSA - funded health center . In 2020 , 41 percent of health centers provided services to children and youth at over 3 , 200 school - based sites .
