The future for Luis and SRJC’s Student Health Services
May 1, 2023
Luis echoed the statements of both Herman and Alfaro. “Since COVID, I would say my mental health has improved significantly, and the student services helped play a role in that, but I still believe there is room for improvement,” he said.
“I think one thing Student Health Services could do to improve would be to have more available drop-in hours during the week so it can be easily accessible to students in need,” Luis said. “I think another thing that could help improve student services is increase health education and awareness by organizing campus-wide events and awareness campaigns to promote health and well-being.”
Now that the world has returned to normalcy with fewer people wearing masks, Luis’ mental health has improved significantly. He attributes part of this to SRJC’s Student Health Services. The rest, he said, is because he can once again go out with his friends: a far cry from how things were during the uncertain and claustrophobic times when he was stuck indoors.
Epstein said that anyone struggling with their mental health is welcome to contact SRJC’s Student Health Services at (707) 527-4445. More information and resources can be found at the Student Health Services website.
