Integrated Health Department
Cleveland Metropolitan School District and Say Yes Cleveland have created the Integrated Health Initiative (IHI) that makes mental and physical health services available to students free through their schools. Get your child all services available by filling out the IHI consent form.
While your school nurse and other trusted providers will continue to provide care, the IHI will allow schools to be even more responsive to the physical and mental health needs of children.
Please complete the consent form and return it to the school. All information on the form will remain private.
A healthy mind, heart, body, and soul = “Academic Success”
