This study compares student health and mental health knowledge, behavior, and access to services for adolescents who used and did not use a school-based health and mental health clinic. Data were collected as part of an anonymous, self-administered survey completed by all students in a school housing a clinic that had been in operation for a school year. Comparisons of clinic users and nonusers revealed differences in health- and mental health-related knowledge and behavior and access to needed care. The clinic was found to be serving adolescents at high risk for a variety of psychosocial problems (e.g., drug use, depression, dropout).
