The ISP/AVC Cares Committee was created as an additional avenue of support for the students at Antelope Valley College who are feeling overwhelmed and are thinking about suicide.
The goal of the Interactive Screening Program (ISP) is to reach students proactively before a crisis emerges. ISP intervenes at many different levels that have been recommended as part of a comprehensive paradigm for preventing suicide.
The AVC Cares Committee carries out their work to create a safe and inviting environment on campus for students by creating and displaying positive inspirational quotes throughout campus, active listening events, bringing awareness to the campus about the stigma and taboo of suicide, supporting educational events, and providing support to students throughout the semester.
To reach an AVC Cares Committee member or if you have any questions about this service, please contact Student Health Services at (661) 722.6300 x 6683.
