Supported education provides supports for individuals with mental health disabilities to take advantage of skill, career, education and interpersonal development opportunities within a normalizing academic environment. Many individuals with behavioral health challenges find their educational process interrupted by their condition. Supported education is about getting those individuals back on track, so they can enjoy the personal fulfillment and career success that come with education.
Supported education is one of the CAFE TA Center’s areas of concentration, and to help introduce consumers to the topic we have just published a new paper entitled Supported Education for Consumers of Mental Health Services. It explores what Supported Education is and how it can benefit those with mental health challenges seeking to further their education and professional choices. If supported education is something that interests you, please check it out today! And feel free to share it with others in your community.
