It’s never been more important for you to be in tune with your student learner’s physical, mental and emotional well-being. Multnomah County and our community partners are continuing to offer a wide range of services to give you and your child peace of mind that healthcare is within reach and affordable during the pandemic.

Student Health Centers

Multnomah County’s Student Health Centers continue to offer in-person, phone and video health visits while schools are engaged in distance learning. Student Health Centers provide comprehensive primary and mental health care services to all Multnomah County youth 5-18 years of age at no out-of-pocket cost. 

Services include immunizations, physical exams, COVID-19 testing, behavioral health, treatment for illness and injury, vision screenings, dental and blood pressure screenings, age-appropriate reproductive health, routine lab tests, prescription medications, health education and counseling, and referrals for healthcare services not provided at the clinics.

Please call one of the following Student Health Centers to make an appointment. You can still get care even if you don’t attend the school where the health center is based.

COVID-19 testing

If you or your student has COVID-19 symptoms, you can ask your doctor to be tested. Knowing you have COVID-19 is important so you can take care of yourself and prevent spreading the virus to others. Call 503-988-5558 to make an appointment at a Multnomah County primary care clinic. Learn more about COVID-19 testing here.

  • Multnomah County School-based Mental Health Program | Website
    The School-based Mental Health Program provides mental health services to children and teens in schools throughout Multnomah County who are either on the Oregon Health Plan or have no insurance. If your student is experiencing a change in mood or regular routine, this program can help. Talk to your student’s school counselor or contact a Student Health Center. They’ll connect your child with a therapist in our program who they can talk to privately. Students 14 and older may seek services on their own. Some Student Health Center locations have clinicians of color who offer culturally specific services.

Reproductive and gender health

  • Community and Adolescent Health Program | aubrey.daquiz@multco.us
    Multnomah County’s Community and Adolescent Health Program provides sexuality classes for students, families, and educators to help youth make informed decisions about their sexual health and supports violence prevention efforts in the community. Our sexuality classes are age-appropriate, culturally encompassing, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer inclusive. Send an email to Program Coordinator Aubrey Daquiz at aubrey.daquiz@multco.us to find out how this program can support your student and family while distance learning.
