An institutional goal of Santa Rosa Junior College is to maintain and improve the health of students and the college community. In addition to our clinical services, Student Health Services works towards this goal through a variety of health promotion efforts:

  • Collaborating with a number of Sonoma County government and non-profit agencies, local providers, and clinics towards integrating health education and promotion into the college community. Areas of focus include substance abuse (alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and other drugs) mental health promotion, and pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease prevention.
  • Consultation with college faculty on health related topics are provided by our staff, including integration of health issues into curricula, classroom environment concerns, and specific health questions.
  • A broad selection of health information pamphlets and referral information is available in all of Student Health Services' offices.

Prevention and Early Intervention Program

In January 2010, Student Health Services received funding through the Mental Health Services Act to implement a Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) program. The PEI program utilizes a comprehensive approach to promote mental health on campus. Highlights of the PEI program include:

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