The Health Education and Prevention Services (HEPS) department supports the health and well-being of the CSU campus community by helping students get healthy, stay healthy, and drive change toward a healthier campus community.
We identify campus health priorities and deliver evidence-based, inclusive programs, services, and initiatives that empower students to achieve academic and personal success during their college years and beyond.
These practices involve fostering awareness, skill-building, and addressing the environmental context in which health behavior decisions are made to create a healthy learning community.
Focus areas include:
- Substance Abuse Prevention
- Mental Health Initiatives
- Well-Being Initiatives
- Peer Education (CREWS)
- Sexual Health Initiatives
- Tobacco Cessation
Health Education and Prevention Services also oversees marketing and communications for the CSU Health Network and supports campus bicycle and pedestrian safety, financial wellness, fitness, nutrition, sun safety and violence prevention efforts.
