Psychosis Flyer

Our valued students are under a great deal of pressure both societally and scholastically.  Sometimes, latent brain concerns arise when stress levels are high. Psychotic symptoms don't always signal a serious schizophrenia, but they can be a heralding sign. Early intervention saves brain function. We want everyone to participate in this learning adventure to fully support our students when they suffer with hallucinations, delusions and other early psychotic features. Our students' staff and faculty are the trusted peers/adults and may be the first person a student with psychotic features talks to. We're going to teach you how to talk with a psychotic person and persuade them into care.

We have 100 available seats for students to attend in-person, so sign up early! We also will have an on-line opportunity via Zoom.

To attend this event in-person, please RSVP by scanning the QR code above or by clicking the link here.

ACHA Survey Results

Mesa Student Health Services partnered with the American College Health Association to provide a valid and reliable student survey in 2018-2019.  Over 500 Mesa students were surveyed.  The results are provided in 2 ways: 

Executive Summary
Raw Data

The focus of the survey is physical and mental health.  The survey results provide a clear picture about what our students believe about their health, their activities, mental health status and much more.  It is important to know what issues, problems and concerns face our students because this gives a more comprehensive picture of who our students are in an “unseen” manner.
