CLASSROOM PRESENTATIONS & HEALTH PROMOTION
Student Health Services partners with SRJC’s faculty, staff, and student organizations to improve the health of our students. Students want and need information on health topics, and skills supporting health behavioral change1, 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
Would you like a training for your class or student group?
Student Health Services offers a variety of trainings to the SRJC community to raise awareness of mental health, share mental health resources, and increase skills to recognize and help someone experiencing mental health challenges. We also offer custom trainings to meet your needs.
ATTEND / PARTICIPATE IN AN SHS EVENT
Student Health Services offers a variety of educational workshops and activities each semester, including peer-led presentations.Current Events

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.
