Dolores, CO: School district to build on-campus health clinic; more social workers for mental health

Sept 15, Cortez (CO) Journal: Dolores Schools receive grant to build health clinic After months of planning, the Dolores school district has received a grant from the Colorado Health Foundation to build an on-campus health clinic. Dolores School District Re-4A applied for the grant this year after receiving a $25,000 planning grant from the Colorado Department of Health and Environment to design the clinic in partnership with the Southwest Open School clinic in Cortez. …The clinic will act as a satellite of the one at SWOS, and it will be open to the public, although its primary focus will be on treating students. Cooper said he still hopes to hire two more social workers to help care for students’ mental health needs, in addition to the two the district hired in June.
