SCHOOL HEALTH

    PM School Administrators

    Healthcare partnership to optimize learning.

    Supporting students' physical and mental health needs together with schools, parents, and primary care pediatricians.

    We know a student’s wellness plays a key part in learning. That’s why PM Pediatric Care physical and mental health experts are partnering with school health providers, school counselors and social workers to help support students’. Our programs, led by board-certified pediatric physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, psychologists, therapists, and care managers, work together with schools to help:

      • Maximize learning and academic achievement
      • Reduce health-related absences
      • Improve disciplinary issues and suspension rates
      • Intervene early and address Behavioral Health concerns

    How can we partner with your school to help students reach their optimal physical, psycho-social, emotional, and educational best?

    • Mental & Behavioral Health Teletherapy

      • We support school counselors and social workers to help promote early identification with validated screening tools, early intervention of minor conditions, and the evaluation and treatment of more moderate conditions.
      • Our team of mental health pediatric providers includes a Psychopharmacologist that can prescribe mental health medications if needed.
      • Our high-quality, comprehensive care includes close collaboration with the school, a student’s family/caregiver, and primary care pediatrician.
      • Translation services are offered with parents/caregivers in the primary language to ensure all families are well informed and able to access direct communication when needed.
    • Physical Health via Telemedicine

      • Our virtual team of pediatric experts can support school health staff with on-demand care during the school day to assist with diagnosis and treatment of mild injuries and illnesses.
      • As mental health is an integral part of a student’s health, we include mental health screenings in all of our visits.
      • In many states, our care can extend into the home—families can easily access telemedicine via our PM Pediatric Care Telehealth app outside of school hours, helping to reduce health-related absences.
    • COVID-19 Consulting and Testing

      We help schools implement regular COVID testing and screening programs that will allow your school to safely open and remain open. We customize the program to meet your school’s individual needs.
