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
- 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:
- 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
- QPR Suicide Prevention trainings teach students how to recognize
the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone
Health 101 is an interactive online magazine
which reports on current health issues and connects students with local and campus
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
- 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.
