We invite all City College students to try out the Interactive Screening Program (ISP)!
Clicking the link at the top or bottom of this message will take you to a secure website where you have the option of completing a brief online questionnaire, which you can submit using a self-assigned User ID. This will be the only way your responses are identified, and thus, the process is entirely confidential. An experienced San Diego City College counselor will then review your questionnaire and will send a personal response to you over the secure website, which will include any recommendations for follow-up. You will then have an opportunity to exchange online messages with the counselor through the anonymous dialogue feature using only your User ID, or to set up a face-to-face meeting to talk to the counselor in more detail. Completing the online questionnaire and making use of this service is completely voluntary. Your access to student health and counseling services will not be affected in any way if you choose not to make use of this service.
We urge all students to take advantage of this safe and easy way to find out if stress, anxiety or depression may be affecting you. The good news is that treatments for these challenges are highly effective and are available right here on the City College campus, or off-campus, if you prefer. If you have any questions about this service, please contact the Mental Health Counseling Center at (619) 388-3539.
We hope all of you will take a few minutes right away to go to the secure website, log in and complete the Stress & Depression Questionnaire. www.citymhcc.org
