Who can be seen at the Wellness Center?

At Aki Kurose Wellness Center, students may be seen by appointment with consent from their parents, during school hours or after school. Teens of any age may be seen for confidential reproductive health care services (birth control, exams). Mental health services are available without parent consent for teens age 13 and over [Reproductive Privacy Act, RCW (9.02)].

The Aki Kurose Wellness Center is sponsored by Kaiser Permanente in partnership with Public Health, Seattle and King County. School-based health centers are provided in part by the voters of Seattle through the Families and Educational Levy.

We are providing telephone visits, video visits and in-person care for students. By appointment only.
