Irvine, CALIFORNIA – (MAY 15, 2023) – Campus Clinic, an award-winning preventative healthcare platform helping schools provide primary care solutions for children and staff, is pleased to announce its new services for the Chula Vista Elementary School District.
Campus Clinic is on a mission to bring accessible healthcare to K-12 schools throughout the nation – to students, but also to staff members on school campuses.
The Chula Vista Elementary School District has over 3,000 staff members, from teachers and administrators to bus drivers and custodians. After facing heightened staff turnover, they realized that they had a growing need for better staff care – specifically mental health support services.
Chula Vista isn’t the only school district to face the growing problem of staff mental health concerns. Teachers are currently listed as one of the top occupations in the 2022 Gallup Poll when it comes to occupational burnout. Nearly half of all K-12 teachers report feeling very often or always burned out at work.
“We want to ensure our staff members always have access to the mental health support they need,” said Jason Romero, Chula Vista ESD Assistant SuperIntendent. “We are excited to see how Campus Clinic will connect our teachers, classified staff, administrators, and other staff members with easy-to-access services, including wellness assessments and therapy.”
In an effort to promote mental wellness in schools and support staff members, Campus Clinic is offering two counseling sessions with a provider at no cost to the patient, to participating schools. This will help staff members understand and act on their indicators of anxiety or depression, then seek help finding a long-term wellness plan.
Staff members aren’t the only ones who will benefit from Campus Clinic’s connection to mental health services. Students will also be able to use it to help identify and treat anxiety and depression – before these issues escalate to high-risk or crisis-level attention.
“On-campus healthcare should be accessible and convenient to everyone, including all of the adults who are critical to the school community” said Thomas Shaffer, Campus Clinic President. “We simply cannot overlook the growing need for staff mental health resources. Our goal is to make therapy and other services more accessible than ever before, especially for teachers.”
