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:
