About the Event
National Eating Disorders Screening Day
All Students May Volunteer
Date: February 28th
Time: 11am – 1pm
Location: San Marcos Campus (Forum Plaza)
This event is held by CSUSM’s Student Health and Counseling Services’ (SHCS) mental health screening program. “SHCS offers in-person confidential screenings to students for disordered eating and eating disorders. This event promotes eating disorders awareness, early intervention and treatment, and stigma reduction. Peer educators and community service providers offer education, campus and community services and resources.”
As volunteers students will be paired with SHCS counselors to conduct in-person eating disorder screenings. Volunteers will score the screening tools. Based on the score, you will refer the student to a counselor for a brief consult, or you will offer the student information about maintaining positive health.
