The weather associated with Hurricane Harvey has severely impacted our community. The following information includes a list of resources available to you and your family. We have done our best to compile a comprehensive list of resources, but we are sure this list does not contain all the resources that are available to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. In addition, changes to services, hours, location and requirements are subject to change without notice.
Free Online Mental Health Screenings
San Jacinto College provides free online mental health screenings for all San Jacinto College students. Mental health screenings are a quick way to determine if you or someone you care about may need to reach out to a doctor or mental health professional for an evaluation. They are educational, not diagnostic. Key factors to keep in mind when completing a mental health screening include:
- Completing these screenings will help you determine if your recent thoughts or behaviors may be associated with common, treatable mental health issues.
- The screenings cannot be linked to any one individual, so you remain anonymous.
- It takes only a few minutes per screening, and at the end you will be presented with resource information and next steps.
Students can access the free online mental health screening by clicking on the link below
