Health Services Team

Our CCUSD healthcare team is comprised of four School Nurses, two Licensed Vocational Nurses, and three Health Technicians, who work collaboratively across all school sites to provide care for our entire CCUSD school population.  

 

Additionally, through a wonderful partnership between CCUSD and the Venice Family Clinic, we are fortunate to have the Sandy Segal Youth Health Center (SSYHC) on our campus.  The SSYHC is a school-based health clinic where CCMS/CCHS students can make appointments for both physical-medical needs and mental health needs.  A licensed doctor provides physical-medical services including: sports physicals, chronic health management, reproductive health, screenings, immunizations, etc.  Mental health services are provided by Marriage and Family Therapist interns and Licensed Clinical Social Work interns operating under the guidance and supervision of a licensed mental health provider. The mental health services include: individual and/or group therapy for issues such as anxiety, depression, bullying, struggles with family or peer relationships, loss/grief, LGBTQ+, and so much more.
