PREVENTION AND WELLNESS PROGRAMS

At no charge, Portland Center students can access self-assessments related to substance abuse (e-CHUG & e-TOKE), AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention learning modules. AlcoholEdu is designed to assist you in making well-informed decisions about alcohol use by presenting information about alcohol’s effects on the body, how to recognize and respond to an alcohol-related emergency, and where to find resources. The Sexual Assault Prevention learning module provides information about sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking and sexual harassment, including available resources and information about supporting friends, co-workers, and fellow students who may have been affected by sexual violence. Sexual Assault Prevention for Adult Learners delivers similar content but was developed for graduate and professional students.   

  

HEALTH PROMOTION

Our website includes information and resources regarding sexual health, nutrition, sleep and tobacco cessation. 

Portland Center students may contact the Survivor Advocacy & Resource Center 24 hours a day to receive support after experiencing a traumatic event. Advocates provide information for survivors, and their allies, to aid in informed decision-making, including information about rights and reporting options. When needed, advocates can help with safety planning, class accommodations, and more. All services are confidential and free. 

The Oregon Contraceptive Care program from the Centers for Medicaid Services and the Oregon State Department of Human Services allows us to provide reproductive health care and contraceptive services to students, regardless of gender, who meet income criteria. Only those who have paid the health fee for the current term are eligible for this program at Student Health Services in Corvallis. However, you can apply for CCare services through your county health department if you live in Oregon. To locate a clinic near you, visit the Oregon Health Authority website. Call the CCare office in Corvallis if you have questions: 541-737-9140.
