FABBIANI, Andrea; PASINOTTI, Andrea; MARTELLO, Bettiana  y  ANTIA, Lucía. Consulta de salud de adolescentes en centros educativos: Adolescents’ health consultations in educational centers. Arch. Pediatr. Urug. [online]. 2016, vol.87, suppl.1, pp.S34-S39. ISSN 0004-0584.

The strategy of centers for Counselling and Sharing or Comprehensive Health Counselling in educational centers constitutes an innovative experience across different sectors in Uruguay. Implementation started in 2012 in Montevideo and the metropolitan area. The strategy aims to improve the quality of life of adolescents and young adults, to provide timely counselling in comprehensive health, to facilitate interaction with health services and other spaces for participation. These centers are spaces for consultation and exchange, access is free and spontaneous for adolescents, and they are led by two professionals trained in medicine, nursing services and psychology. Counselling is the method applied, and it lies within the framework of confidentiality and progressive autonomy principles, promoting the development of healthy behaviors and skills for life. The potential population of beneficiaries rises to over 3,000 students between 12 and 19 years old, their families and references in the school community. Two thousand and four hundred consultations were received between August, 2012 and June 2015. It has been seen that students make it their own, they spontaneously visit the service and positively value its existence. Likewise, most consultations are solved immediately, by listening and offering appropriate advice. Response to more complex situations is coordinated between the school community, families and social networks.
