  • The School Health Services Program is intended to minimize health barriers to learning for public school students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.  It addresses day-to-day student health needs, emergency health needs, and in-school management of chronic and acute health conditions like diabetes, asthma, allergies, and epilepsy.  In-school care management helps to ensure that student health conditions do not prevent students from attending school. 

Abess Park Elementary School is proud to provide mental wellness support, at no cost to families, through Full-Service Schools and Hazel Health. United Way of Northeast Florida -- Jacksonville is a diverse city with diverse needs. Full-Service Schools recognizes that achievement is fostered in and out of the classroom, and the initiative brings together community resources, neighbors, and schools to promote the health and well-being of students, their families, and neighborhood residents.  The Full-Service Schools collaboration enables United Way and its partners to connect nearly 3,500 students and families to a critical range of therapeutic, health and social services and address non-academic barriers to success in school.

Full-Service Schools can help:

  • children whose grades are dropping
  • families who are in crisis
  • students who are having trouble controlling their emotions

Hazel Health has partnered with Duval County Public Schools to provide access to quality health care services for all students, at no cost to families, this school year. A school health representative can initiate a video visit with a Hazel health care provider while your child is at-school to provide either physical or mental health services. Therapy sessions with Hazel Health are a safe space and are private and confidential.
