The Berkeley High School Health Center is a safe, nurturing, and dynamic multicultural teen health center. Our teens are encouraged to develop the skills they need to take ownership and responsibility for their own health and wellness as well as that of the larger community.
The Berkeley High School Health Center empowers teens to take responsibility for their physical, emotional, and social health by engaging their strengths, experiences, and knowledge. The Health Center provides access to culturally appropriate care through a combination of direct services, partnerships, and referrals to community resources.
