Health Promotion & Wellness

Student Health Services works towards fostering a healthy SRJC community through a variety of health promotion efforts. We recognize that students will be more successful when healthy in body, mind and spirit, and when connected to a healthy campus community.

 

How to access health promotion information
  • Stop by any of our SHS locations to pick up health information brochures and community provider referral sheets.
  • Come to our events and interactive workshops – click on Current Events for the most updated schedule.
  • Request a presentation for your class or student group. We provide presentations on a variety of health topics; for the list of presentations and request forms visit Resources for Staff.
  • Check out our variety of online activities which include avatar based trainings, an online health magazine, and anonymous mental health screenings.
    • 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, as well as 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.
  • Look for the mobile “Wheels of Wellness” out on the quad and come chat with Student Health Services staff and student leaders.

PEERS Coalition

The PEERS Coalition is a program within Student Health Services that utilizes the authentic and creative voices of students to increase the conversation about mental health at SRJC. By raising awareness and reducing stigma around mental health, we foster an accepting environment that promotes student wellness and success. The PEERS student team plans events, educates students about mental wellness, and collaborates with other student groups on campus. Like PEERS on Facebook to keep up with all of our news & events!

PEERS Coalition is funded through the Mental Health Services Act, Prevention and Early Intervention programs.
