    Ingraham's Teen Health Center is located next to the counseling office. The THC provides students with physical and mental health services.

    The Ingraham Teen Health Center is committed to helping adolescents achieve wellness and success in all aspects of life. We work in active partnership with teens, their families, the school and our community. The health center, which is located in the school, is open during the school year to provide health care and mental health counseling. The health center is available to all Ingraham students.

    The Ingraham Teen Health Center is a collaboration among Ingraham High School, Public Health Seattle-King County, and Kaiser. This program is sponsored, in part, by the Families and Education Levy passed by the voters of Seattle. We have a full time Nurse Practitioner and a Mental Health counselor providing all the services. The staff is trained to understand and treat the special health care needs of teens. Our team includes Teri Ginster, the Nurse Practitioner; Elenora Von the Mental Health Counselor; and Christy An, the Clinic Coordinator. All work closely with the school nurse, Janet Boyett.
