Referrals & Linkages
Why it matters
Building Effective Referral Systems
It is important for health centers and youth-serving organizations to build formal relationships and develop effective referral systems to ensure young people are aware of and able to access care. We work with health centers, schools, and community-based organizations to develop and implement strategies to best connect young people in their community to needed health services.
Identify and discuss the roles that school staff can play in facilitating access to health services for students.
Sparks are designed for providers or staff to deliver in 15-30 minutes at staff meetings or professional development opportunities. These trainings will “spark” discussion and reflection among your multidisciplinary team. All sparks include a PowerPoint presentation, a facilitator outline, and follow-up materials.
Starter Guides are mini-toolkits that offer concrete, actionable steps to improve adolescent care. Browse our library today.
