The West Jefferson School-Based Health Center (SBHC) is one of five school health center service sites operated by Access Health Louisiana (AHL) in Jefferson Parish.  It is located in Harvey on the westbank side of the Mississippi River.  AHL provides the Behavioral Health services for this clinic only.  Primary Care is provided by Ochsner Health System.  The West Jefferson SBHC is accessible for all high school students because it is located in the front of campus.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker Susan Glapion provides behavioral health counseling at the clinic.  She sees students for a variety of reasons including:  stress and anger management, anxiety, trauma, depression and bullying.  Therapy is offered on an individual or group basis.  Students can visit Mrs. Glapion by going to the health center.  Parents can also call and request that their child be seen for care.  All students must have a current consent and enrollment form on file at the health center in order to be seen by medical staff.  Consent and enrollment forms are sent home at the beginning of the year; however, parents may sign their child up for services at any time during the school year.

Co-payments are waived for all students and faculty/staff enrolled at our SBHC.  Commercial insurances including Medicaid and Medicare are accepted.  Students who are uninsured can also receive care with a consent and enrollment form on file with the health center.  Any medications prescribed for your child may be filled through the Access Health Louisiana Pharmacy and delivered to your home.  We also work with nearby Walgreens and CVS pharmacies and can have most prescriptions filled at a discounted rate.

Students needing emergency care after hours, please call 9-1-1.
