HEALTH PROMOTION AND CLASSROOM PRESENTATIONS
The Student Health Services staff look forward to partnering with SRJC’s faculty and staff towards improving the health of our students. Students want and need information on health topics, and skills supporting health behavioral change (see SRJC NCHA II Executive Summary), and the classroom setting is where this is most effectively accomplished.
Here are some ways you can promote the health of our students as a faculty member:
REQUEST A PRESENTATION FOR YOUR CLASS
List of Classroom Presentation Topics
- Clinicians, mental health counselors, health promotion specialists and student health support peers from the department, as well as health educators from community agencies are available to speak on various issues, such as substance abuse, sexual health, healthy relationships and other topics.
- Enter the details of class times, preferred dates, number of students and the content you would like for the presentation, with as much lead time as possible. We are prepared to work with you on adapting presentations from this list to meet your particular course and/or student needs.
Student Health Services offers a variety of educational workshops and activities each semester, including peer-led presentations.
- Visit our Current Events web page.
TUBERCULOSIS CLEARANCES AND FIRST AID FOR WORK-RELATED INJURIES
SRJC staff and faculty may utilize Student Health Services clinical services to obtain their required work related tuberculosis clearance, at no cost to the employee. They also may receive initial first aid for an acute work-related injury, with a referral to the District’s Occupational Health provider as indicated.
REFERRING STUDENTS TO STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES
Student Health Services seeks to promote academic success by assisting students with physical or mental health issues. Should you become aware of a student with these concerns, please refer them to us, either on the Santa Rosa or Petaluma campus. Their obtaining an initial assessment is very straightforward. Details are available at shs.santarosa.edu
HOW TO REFER A STUDENT
When you are particularly concerned about a student’s mental health and would like to make a referral to Student Psychological Services specifically, we encourage you to use the Crisis "Yellow Card" Referral Form*
Student Referral cards and Staff Procedures are available on the Downloadable Forms page or via the links above. If possible, it is often useful to walk a student in distress to our offices.
*(The term “yellow card” began when we used to print cards on yellow stock paper. Now, we leave the printing to you, so most are actually on white paper.)
B:CARE (BEHAVIORAL CONSULTATION, ASSESSMENT, RESPONSE & EDUCATION) TEAM
Members of the Student Health Services staff are actively involved on the BCARE Team (formerly CIRT), assisting staff in intervention with students exhibiting distressed and/or disruptive behavior.
Visit the B:CARE website for more information.
FIRST AID KIT SUPPLIES
First Aid kits are maintained by Student Health Services in each department for staff and faculty to use in the event of an injury by anyone in a class or service setting. If supplies are needed to replenish the kits, there is a Reorder Form in each kit that can be completed and sent to Student Health Services via inter-campus mail.
