The College Years: How Students with Lived Experience Navigate Academics and Mental Health Management
October 10, 2018
Amanda Costa, Laura Golden and Ian Lane

Description: Young adults with mental health conditions make up a growing percentage of students on college campuses, yet they continually struggle academically and have one of the highest dropout rates of any disability group. This webinar will describe findings from a qualitative study that paints an intimate picture of the facilitators and barriers to academic success faced by college students with mental health conditions from the direct perspectives of college students, faculty, and Disability and Counseling Services staff. This webinar will also describe an innovative peer-to-peer academic coaching intervention designed to address facilitators and barriers identified in our research findings.
