School Based Health Centers (SBHC) are an easy and affordable way for middle and high schoolers in Portland to be able to see a doctor about both physical and mental health issues. They can help you with routine physical exams, sports injuries, prescriptions and even counseling. But what about when the summer comes and you’re out of school?
It turns out there will be one SBHC that stays open during the summer months. Parkrose High School’s SBHC will stay open from June 18 to August 16 and you can call them to make an appointment at 503-988-3392. It’s really scary not knowing where to go to get help for anything involving your health, physical or mental, so make sure you keep in mind that this is still available to you even when you aren’t in school. You can visit their website for more information about how to get in touch with them, what they do, and directions to Parkrose High.

Here’s a great picture of some of the Lines for Life’s youth volunteers at the most recent CARSA (Community Action to Reduce Substance Abuse) meeting. The man in the middle is Gil Kerlikowske, the current Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy! He was there to talk about prescription drugs and how to help Oregon keep them out of the wrong hands.

This is a great song! Sometimes things are just too tough to try to get through alone. Don’t be afraid to look to your friends or family to lean on, and when all else fails remember that we’re here to help!
