Wellness Description

Pasadena City College has just been awarded a 2-year grant to create a campus culture of wellness to promote student achievement. The project will include a Wellness Center as a first-stop for students, faculty and staff to:

    1. Access information and resources to support their own well-being, and
    2. Increase their knowledge of stigmas and discrimination against underserved/underrepresented student groups.
Objectives designed to achieve that goal are :
    1. Recognition of mental health challenges facing underserved students
    2. Build awareness of the connection between academic success and well-being.
    3. Provide alternative resources to address student mental health needs, and
    4. Develop a dynamic campus and community collaborative.
The Journey to Wellness project will use three approaches recommended by the CCC SMHP to address the wellness needs of the campus community. These will include: faculty and staff training; peer to peer resources; and suicide prevention Committed partners for the project include the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, Pasadena Unified School District, and California State University, Los Angeles. These and other educational community partners will take part in a Student Mental Health Regional Strategizing Forum supported by the grant.

Activities planned through the project include:

  • Wellness fairs
  • Faculty and staff trainings
  • Well workers week
  • Lose Big, Win Big
  • Personal development workshops

 

The Journey to Wellness project is funded by The California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA) which is an organization of county governments working to improve mental health outcomes for individuals, families and communities. Prevention and Early Intervention programs implemented by CalMHSA are funded through the voter-approved Mental Health Services Act (Prop 63). Prop. 63 provides the funding and framework needed to expand mental health services to previously underserved populations and all of California's diverse communities.
