Petoskey School Wellness Program (at Petoskey High School)

About this Location



The Petoskey School Wellness Program is a collaboration of Public Schools of Petoskey and Alcona Health Center supported through funding from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).  With parental/guardian permission, our licensed Behavioral Health Therapist and School Nurse can provide healthcare conveniently within Petoskey High School.  This allows for ease of access, fewer disruptions of regular routines and less loss of class time for students.

Additionally, Alcona Health Center and the Public Schools of Petoskey have a separate collaboration to place Behavioral Health Therapists at every school in the district.  (This program is not funded by MDHHS.)  For more information on behavioral health services at other school locations, please select “locations” from the main menu at the top of the screen.
