Health communication can be defined as communication strategies used to inform and impact individual and community decisions with the goal of improving and enriching personal and community behaviors and public health practices.

At the Student Health Center, we believe in the importance of designing educational & communicative strategies to promote health and well-being as part of our students’ lifestyle. We support students and help them learn valuable skills they need to make healthy and informed choices throughout their lifetime.

We believe that Health education builds students' knowledge, skills, and positive attitudes about physical, mental, emotional and social health. It motivates students to improve and maintain their well-being, prevent disease, and reduce risky behaviors.

MindWise Cuesta

MindWise screening offers a comprehensive approach to mental health, substance use, and suicide prevention. By taking this screen, students can learn if they have a behavioral health concern, learn signs and symptoms; this is also an opportunity to connect our Cuesta community with mental health by reducing the stigma, providing education, early intervention, crisis management, promoting self-care strategies and wellness resources available for them.
