Students with Mental Health Needs in Colleges and Universities

The Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law offers materials to help guide colleges and universities in creating and implementing comprehensive and effective policies to support students with mental health needs. A new model policy was developed in consultation with mental health experts, higher education administrators, counselors, and students.

Additionally, a guide for students and a fact sheet are designed to answer frequently asked questions and help students with mental health issues understand their rights.
