Meeting students where they’re at

School-based health centers operate as a partnership between Central High School, District 51, and MarillacHealth. The Warrior Wellness Center provides a combination of primary care services, mental health care, nutrition education, health education, and health promotion.

Due to COVID-19 and in following guidelines from Mesa County Public Health, masks are required of everyone in the clinic. Additionally, we must follow 6 ft social distancing within the health clinic and strict hand-washing hygiene. The health center lobby and exam rooms will be cleaned and disinfected following every visit.

Team-Based Model

MarillacHealth follows a team-based model of care in which medical and behavioral health providers partner to facilitate the detection, treatment, and follow-up of mental health or behavioral disorders.

This approach promotes overall wellness in patients by treating mental or behavioral health needs together with other health conditions in the primary care setting. It not only improves mental health outcomes but also helps prevent and reduce chronic disease.
