Outreach Services

The Model Schools Pediatric Health Initiative is an alternative health care delivery model providing health care to children through school based health centres. The program was founded in 2010 to help alleviate health care access barriers and disparities among Toronto’s most vulnerable inner city children. The program now focuses on developmental and mental health care.

There are two SBHCs, one at Sprucecourt Public School and another at Nelson Mandela Park Public School.  Each SBHC serves approximately 20 surrounding inner city schools.
