Students

Adolescence is a medically important time in everyone's life. Its when health habits and risk behaviors are formed that will affect children for a lifetime. One of the main goals of the School-Based Health Centers (SBHC) is to increase access to care and keep students in school and parents at work, especially for the underserved and uninsured populations. Another primary goal is to promote preventative health education and learning to avoid risk behaviors.  

Mountain Community Health Partnership (MCHP) is excited to continue offering quality care within the middle schools of Yancey County. Your child does not have to be an MCHP patient to receive these services and can receive them even if they already have a designated primary care provider. Our staff consists of a Family Nurse Practitioner - Kay McLaughlin, Registered Nurse - Shelley Laws, and Front Desk Clerk - June Elkins.
