The Brookings Harbor High School YACwanted everyone to know why SBHCs (School-Based Health Centers) are so important to the community. They also wanted the district and their fellow students to know exactly what services are available at the SBHC. They wanted to take their advocacy to the next level so….
In partnership with Allcare Healththe YAC created a Facebook advertisement. Yea we know its NBD. Everybody spends their time advocating for SBHCs and making Facebook Ads, totally typical.
Just kidding! This is outside the box advocacy! And as the Statewide Youth Action Council we thought this project was #amazing you all rocked it!
Side Note: Don’t forget about us when the NFL features you guys during the Super Bowl Ads
(aka the biggest stage for any advertisement ever)
Brookings Harbor High worked hard and created a 30 second advertisement that encompasses the services of their SBHC reminding everyone that
“It’s all here for students to utilize and benefit from"
And in their full length youtube video we go “Behind the Scenes” and get a visual tour of the Brookings health center as one member; Fernando Lira shares his story. He speaks of how all his checkups and sports physicals took place at the SBHC. Stating that
“The people here are great people, they know what to do.”
He goes on to explain there's a “circle of trust” at the SBHC, and how it's a great place to begin and continue your health care journey through building a relationship with the staff. All the while learning what they do and how they can help you. In the end he wants every student to experience the level of trust and confidence he has in the staff at Brookings Harbor High School SBHC.

From the Statewide Youth Action Council to the Brookings Harbor High School YAC -
"We are so impressed by your work and thank you for inspiring the community to support & utilize SBHCs"
On Friday, February 26, Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters and Rep. Lois Capps (CA-24) introduced the Hallways to Health Act (S.2590/H.R. 4621), legislation that would provide federal support for high-quality comprehensive health care and mental health services to students at school-based health centers (SBHCs) across the country.
The Hallways to Health Act would:
increase access to health care through SBHCs
incorporate community health workers and telehealth services in the SBHC model
Join the Oregon School-Based Health Alliance during our #GivingTuesday campaign called Creating Cultures of Wellness! Our goal is to raise $30,000 to support our advocacy efforts and school-based health centers across Oregon.
