What is a Wellness Center?
The Wellness Center is a health center at Mount Pleasant High School, located in room 122B. We are administered by Christiana Care Health Systems under a grant from the Division of Public Health. The school-based wellness center services supplement the Primary Care Provider and include preventive and acute medical, nutritional, and mental health. To ensure comprehensive care, we work in a collaborative manner with each other and community professionals. We emphasize the special health and emotional needs of adolescents.
Who can use the Wellness Center?
The Wellness Center is available to all students, grades 9 through 12, who are attending Mount Pleasant High School and have been registered in the Wellness Center by their parent/legal guardian. Parents/legal guardians must fill out the Wellness Center registration forms in order for their student to receive services from the Wellness Center. This form is available on the school website, the Main, Guidance, and Nurse’s offices and in a rack outside of the Wellness Center. A menu of our services is included on the registration form and parents/guardians can choose or decline the services their child can receive.
