NSCH has two School-Based Health and Behavioral Health Centers: Salem High School Teen Health Center, Peabody Veterans War Memorial High School Teen Health Center and four behavioral health only sites in the following Salem schools: Collins Middle School, Bates Elementary School, Bentley Academy Charter School, and Horace Mann Laboratory School.
Each site delivers high quality, culturally competent, comprehensive primary care – medical, dental and behavioral health services. NSCH also offers supportive services such as health education, translation, health insurance eligibility and enrollment assistance, and transportation that promote access to health care.
No one seeking care at any of our sites will be denied access to services due to inability to pay. We offer a discounted/sliding fee scale based on family size and income. Click here for the current sliding scale document.
