Academic Accommodations For Students with Psychiatric Disabilities

This UW page has a lot of insightful information, such as identifying what mental illness is, how it can affect a student’s performance in school, and advice on what steps to take to balance mental health and keeping on with classes!

As stated on their page, “Students with psychiatric disabilities are entitled to reasonable academic accommodations as provided by the American Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and 2008 amendments. Providing effective accommodations allows students equal access to academic courses and activities. The presence of students with disabilities also contributes to the diversity of the student population.”
