Health Promotion and Wellness

Student Health Services works towards a healthy college community through a variety of health promotion efforts:

  • Health promotion events and workshops - click on Current Events for the most updated schedule.
  • Health information brochures and community provider referral sheets are available at all Student Health Services locations.
  • Classroom presentations on a variety of health topics. Staff and faculty can make a request for a presenter to visit their class; for the list of presentations and request forms visit Resources for Staff
  • Consultation with college faculty on health related topics, including integration of health issues into curricula, classroom environment concerns, and specific health questions.

    Prevention & Early Intervention (PEI) Program

    In January 2010, Student Health Services received funding through the Mental Health Services Act (also known as Proposition 63) to implement a Prevention and Early Intervention program. The PEI program utilizes a comprehensive approach to promote mental health on campus.

      Education and Outreach

      Student Health and Success is a classroom presentation that offers information about common mental health issues, educates students on how to get help or help a friend, and shares information on local and on-line mental health resources.

      QPR Suicide Prevention trainings teach students how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.

      Online Resources

      Student Health 101 is an interactive online magazine which reports on current health issues and connects students with local and campus resources.

      College Response allows students to complete an anonymous online screening for Depression, Anxiety, Alcohol, Eating Disorders or PTSD to see if they would benefit from professional consultation.

      Kognito is an online avatar-based program that allows peers, staff, and faculty to explore warning signs of distress and practice having challenging conversations with emotionally responsive characters. There are six modules that discuss different issues unique to students in distress, LGBTQ students, and student veterans.

      Staff Development

      QPR Suicide Prevention trainings teach staff and faculty how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.

      PEI program works with the SRJC Crisis Intervention Resource Team to incorporate current resources and research in preventative mental health into CIRT trainings and consultations.

      Building Networks

      The PEI program collaborates with local agencies to better serve our students and hosts the Sonoma County Mental Health Networking Event each spring to foster new connections.

      A partnership with Sonoma County Mental Health's Crisis Assessment Prevention and Education (CAPE) team strengthens our ability to intervene early with students in crisis.

    PEERS Coalition

    The PEERS Coalition is a student-led organization on campus that is working to raise awareness and reduce stigma around mental health issues in the college community.

      About PEERS

      The PEERS Coalition (People Empowering Each other to Realize Success) was established in 2012 and is funded by the Mental Health Services Act (Proposition 63). PEERS strives to mobilize the student voice around mental health on campus. By raising awareness and reducing stigma around mental health, we foster an accepting environment that promotes student wellness and success.

      The PEERS Coalition internship is an opportunity to help in the efforts to raise awareness and reduce stigma around mental health and wellness here at SRJC. The PEERS Interns plan events, outreach, and communicate with the community. The PEERS Internship is a merit-based, professional opportunity.
