Colleges

Possibilities for Change is making a difference at college campuses across the nation.

Consider the facts

  • 3 out of 4 college students are sexually active
  • 40% are using tobacco
  • 35% are using alcohol
  • 26% of college aged RAAPS recipients screen positive for depression

With these types of behaviors present, it’s imperative that young adults are equipped with the resources they need to protect their health. Developed by experts and peers, RAAPS and ACT addresses issues that really matter, in language they relate to, on an online format, which allows students to feel comfortable answering honestly across the range of risk topics. RAAPS and ACT can help with:

  • Risk identification: immediately identify behaviors and issues (both mental and physical) so at-risk students can get the care and referrals they need to be successful
  • Data: more accurate data, allowing tracking of outcomes at both the individual and population level. Data that is easily accessible to show improvements, including benchmarks and annual comparisons
  • Efficiency: students complete assessments prior to counseling to make the best use of limited counselor time and resources
  • Reimbursement: meet requirements for billing and insurance reimbursement

The consequences of these risk behaviors have a significant financial impact on the institution when students are not identified and drop out.

Helping you achieve Healthy Campus 2020 goals, RAAPS identifies risk behaviors impacting health, well-being, and academic success in college students, including:

  • Substance Use & Binge Behaviors
  • Sexual Health and Dating Violence
  • Depression & Suicide
  • Unintentional Injury
  • Violence & Safety
  • Diet & Exercise

RAAPS supports your work improving the mental and physical health of students:

  • Enhancing your ability to screen and counsel individual student risks
  • Facilitating referrals to support services
  • Improving overall reporting for administration
  • Increasing compliance with regulations involving student health
  • Lowering student attrition rates leading to improved financial performance
