AbstractCollege education or training can be the passport to economic self-sufficiency for young adults with a mental health condition. Research has shown that young adults with mental health conditions struggle to complete high school and college more so than any other disability group. However, post-secondary education or training is possible for anyone, especially accompanied by the proper accommodations, assistive technology, and strategic supports. This tip sheet providers information on 1) Why it’s important to support the educational goals of young adults; 2) ways to cultivate motivation toward educational goals; 3) some strategies to help young adults achieve educational goals; 4) acquiring educational accommodations; and 5) balancing school and work. Spanish and Portuguese translations are available.
