Project OCEAN (On Campus Emergency Assistance Network) at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) was initiated in September, 2008 and was a federally funded program that focused on campus suicide prevention. The program was funded by SAMHSA in 2008 and ended in 2011.
Currently, Project OCEAN is funded by the voter approved Mental Health Services Act, Prop 63. It is one of several Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) Initiatives implemented by the California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA), an organization of county governments working to improve mental health outcomes for individuals, families, and communities. CalMHSA operates services and education programs on a statewide, regional and local basis.
Project OCEAN focuses on providing CSULB with training and psychoeducation about mental illness and mental health as it relates to prevention and early intervention. Project OCEAN strives to increase awareness of support services on campuses and in the community and also offers free online mental health screenings. The activities of Project OCEAN are designed to strengthen and fill gaps in existing services to “expand the safety net” for students vulnerable to mental health crises.
Project OCEAN supports the mental health concerns of all students.
