On Monday, February 13, Senators Debbie Stabenow (MI), Gary Peters (MI), Sherrod Brown (OH), and Al Franken (MN), along with House Representatives John Sarbanes (MD), Debbie Dingell (MI), Eric Swalwell (CA), Rosa Delauro (CT), and John Larson (CT) re-introduced the Hallways to Health Act (S.356/H.R.1027), 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. This legislation was originally introduced last year in the 114th Congress, and the re-introduction of the bill comes during National School-Based Health Care Awareness Month, which is celebrated every February.

There are more than 2,300 SBHCs in 49 states and the District of Columbia. SBHCs are critical access points that provide comprehensive care to children and adolescents in schools, including primary care, behavioral and oral health services, and prevention and early intervention.
