Welcome to the California Community Colleges Student Mental Health Program Website.
CCC SMHP is a statewide student mental health program being implemented within the California community colleges. CCC SMHP is one of several Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) initiatives funded by the voter-approved Mental Health Services Act (Prop. 63) and implemented by the California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA). CalMHSA is an organization of California counties working to improve mental health outcomes for individuals, families, and communities. CCC SMHP is based on three strategic directions targeting faculty, staff, and students in all 113 California community colleges.
CCC SMHP is a partnership between the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office (CCCCO) and the Foundation for Community Colleges (Foundation).
In partnership with the UCI Counseling Center and UCI Medical Humanities Initiative, Associated Students UCI proudly presents the 2017 Reclaim Mental Health Conference. This conference aims to 1) explore the onset, symptoms, and treatment of mental illness, 2) illumination the disproportionate risk factors for mental illness among marginalized communities, and 3) examine mental health through a sociopolitical lens.
