Work Together: The Higher Education Support Toolkit

The Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation has published a FREE toolkit for disability service providers, healthcare providers, and college students with psychiatric disabilities to plan for and deal with mental health issues that arise during the school year. Here’s a blurb:

The Higher Education Support Toolkit, developed by the Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation, provides disability service staff and health care staff with a simple way to work with students who are experiencing challenges arising from their psychiatric disability.

Using these worksheets, student and staff together can:

  • identify common disability related limitations
  • create a take-away handout of resources that are campus-specific
  • explore options for utilizing accommodations and
  • determine appropriate strategies for use in the classroom.

The toolkit is available as a free download at the Center’s website at http://www.bu.edu/cpr/resources/supportstudents/.

The Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation has many resources for professionals, families, and people with psychiatric disabilities. They also have a monthly e-cast newsletter which we highly recommend!
