Role of the Community Health Worker in the School
December 4, 2014 By Janet

There is a community health worker available to students in our schools. As a South Shore Health employee, his/her role is to provide support to our grades 7-12 students in the areas of substance use, mental health, and sexual health. Students may access this support directly, on their own or in consultation with guidance, school administration, or other school staff. Another role of the community health worker is to connect students with other specialized health services, when required, such as clinical therapists and nurse practitioners. As health services, this involvement is confidential, provided the student is considered competent to consent (in Nova Scotia, there is no age of consent for health services).

If your son or daughter would like to access these services, please have him/her contact the school or phone South Shore Health at (902) 543-5400 to find out the days these services are available.
