Health and Counseling Services
The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 virus has highlighted the increasing need for on-campus accessible health care. Whether they remain on campus, in San Luis Obispo or at their permanent homes, many students have found themselves without a job and disconnected from social support systems amidst growing health concerns. It is imperative, now more than ever, that we work to further prioritize the physical and mental health of all students -- whether remote or in the San Luis Obispo community.
Access to quick and high-caliber health care during these times is paramount, especially for students who may not have the means to get themselves to a hospital. Further, as students practice social distancing find themselves disconnected from their social support systems the need for counseling becomes ever important. Throughout this situation, Cal Poly's Health & Counseling Center is committed to remaining open in order to serve the many students who remain in San Luis Obispo. The personnel staffing the Health & Counseling Center work tirelessly to to ensure that all Cal Poly students receive quality health care and mental health counseling at little-to-no out of pocket expense as well as providing both over-the counter and prescription medication at significantly reduced costs.
We are asking for your help to raise money in support of Cal Poly's Health & Counseling center in order to keep these vital resources accessible to any and all students who need them. Funds raised will go to ensuring the doctors, pharmacists, & counselors on staff have the tools they need to provide consistent, quality care to students in need -- as well as keep prices for OTC and prescription medication low. In time, we hope to use some of these funds to help cover the costs of COVID-19 testing kits at the health center for students who do not currently have the financial means to get tested.
Thank you in advance for making a difference in the lives of students during this difficult time and showcasing the positive impact of the Cal Poly Community.
