While MASBHC advocates on behalf of Maryland school-based health care, the School-Based Health Alliance advocates for SBHCs all over the country. MASBHC is a state affiliate of the School-Based Health Alliance
The School-Based Health Alliance creates a formal relationship with each state affiliate which reflects the desire of both parties to build a strong national organization with a network of strong state associations representing and working on behalf of children, adolescents, their families, and school-based health care. Building from an agreement to share in the the School-Based Health Alliance Board-approved mission, vision, and core values, the School-Based Health Alliance and State Affiliates assist each other in building a comprehensive coalition and a grassroots movement to advance a federal policy agenda supportive of school-based and school-linked health services.
MASBHC’s Hallways to Health program is sponsored by the School-Based Health Alliance and Kaiser Permanente’s Thriving Schools program.
MASBHC’s newest initiative, the Maryland Adolescent Health Collaborative is made possible through a partnership with the Amerigroup Foundation
MASBHC is also supported by the Maryland State Department of Education
