Denver Health School-Based Health Center on Manual Campus

Denver Health’s School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) offers services for any DPS student and is available throughout the school year. SBHC offers convenient care at no charge to the family or student patient. Parental/Guardian consent is required and must be resubmitted each school year. Students in 6th grade and above may visit the health center without their parent/guardian present. Clinic staff encourages patients to discuss their health care with their parents. However, Colorado state law allows some visits to the health center to be confidential as appropriate. Information is not shared without patient and/or parental permission. The only exception is a life-threatening situation. Consent forms may be accessed here.
