Welcome to the California Community Colleges Student Mental Health Program Website.
In October, 2011 the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office (CCCCO) was awarded $6.9 million by the California Mental Health Service Authority (CalMHSA). This funding is being utilized through the California Community Colleges Student Mental Health Program (CCC SMHP), and is intended to focus on prevention and early intervention strategies which address the mental health needs of students and advance the collaboration between educational settings, county services, and the community at large which should form the foundation of future CalMHSA programs.
The CCC SMHP is a partnership between the CCCCO and the Foundation for California Community Colleges (FCCC). There are four main components of the CCC SMHP:

Cuesta College is partnering with the local CSU, Cal Poly, to bring their "Clothesline Project" to campus with a focus on mental health and sexual violence discrimination and stigma. There will be a large clothesline installation where shirts will be hung that give descriptions of stigma or feelings around being stigmatized due to mental health issues and sexual violence. There will be a table on site to create the shirts and the local CSU will be providing crisis counseling as needed.
