Student Health Services Mission Statement
AWC Student Health Services (SHS) believes a student must maintain physical and behavioral health to achieve academic success. To accomplish this goal, AWC SHS promotes healthy lifestyles to emphasize safety and to prevent disease and injury by providing nursing services and health/wellness education to encourage students to take responsibility for their own lifelong health decisions. It is through innovative partnerships with the Yuma Community our student population can improve in their medical and mental well-being which will assist in their academic achievements.
Behavioral Health screening now available on-line
Research reports that 45 percent of students felt hopeless at least once during the past year (ACHA 2011). Behavioral Health Screening raises awareness and educates students about the signs and symptoms of mood and anxiety disorders, as well as connecting at-risk students to the resources they need. Students, faculty, and staff can receive a free, confidential screening that takes only about three minutes.
Taking periodic stock of your emotional well-being can help identify warning signs of common ailments like depression or anxiety. Such illnesses are highly treatable, especially when they are identified in their early stages, before they get so severe that they precipitate some sort of personal — and perhaps financial — crisis.
Take the screening to learn about your health.
