How to Open a SBHC - New Mexico's Guide
This resource was developed for administrators, managers, or other professionals involved in running school-based health centers (SBHCs) in New Mexico. Much of this information, but not all, translates very well for SBHCs in Maine. It is not intended to be an exhaustive manual, but instead an introductory tool.
MeASBHC gratefully acknowledges the New Mexico Office of School Health (OSH) and the New Mexico Assembly on
School-Based Health Care who developed and disseminate this guide.
