Metro Care Connection


Mission Statement

The mission of Metro Care Connection School-Based Services is to support student learning and the physical, social, emotional, and behavioral health of all students by collaborating to provide school-based healthcare, mental health services and substance abuse counseling.

School-Based Health Center and Services

Metro Care Connection is a collaborative school and community effort offering school-based health care services to all CRCSD students since 1998.

Health care, mental health counseling and substance abuse counseling are available for students and their siblings if the family is without access to other services. These services are available thanks to a partnership between Cedar Rapids Community Schools, The Abbe Center, the Area Substance Abuse Council and local grants and gifts.

Metro Care Connection is staffed by 3 Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, 7 mental health therapists, and 3 substance abuse counselors.
