ARCH in collaborative partnership with campuses across Los Angeles County can support both students and existing campus resources by providing education, referral, assessment, and stigma-reducing mental health information to students online and on-campus. Our goal is two-fold: prevention, and to support students in need of direct assistance due to ongoing needs. Because of challenges facing the capacity of existing campus resources, we are particularly focused on being a critical resource for students who are on the fence about seeking mental health support—students who may have questions about mental health but feel they are not ready to reach out to the campus counseling offices.
We are also a community resource to parents who may have questions about how mental health services can support students.
ARCH is currently in collaboration with Pasadena City College and Rio Hondo College.
