SMP serves as the outreach arm for Student Health Outreach for Wellness, which has a network of clinics across the valley serving vulnerable populations including individuals experiencing homelessness, individuals from low income communities, and individuals recovering from substance use. Utilizing a biopsychosocial model of care, SMP aims to improve the health and well-being of Phoenix’s homeless population by holistically addressing each individual’s goals and needs.
