Transition to College for Youth with Psychosis
November 16, 2023

About the Session:

This 60-minute session is a case-based discussion covering the process of assessing readiness for college, accessing accommodations, and preparing youth with a history of psychosis to transition to college. Many young people are interested in higher education but are unsure of what that may look like after receiving a diagnosis of a primary psychotic disorder. We hope to equip attendees with basic knowledge of psychosis spectrum disorders, considerations for a transition to college, and resources for supporting these young adults in achieving success!


Intended Audience:

This introductory-level learning series is geared toward the following school personnel from middle and high schools:

  • School mental health providers, such as school counselors, social workers, psychologists, and other mental health professionals (those hired by the school and those who work for a community organization and come into the school to provide school mental health services)

  • School nurses/school health aides, and other primary care partners working in schools 

  • School educators, administrators, school resource officers, and mental health peer leaders


Please note: This is session 3 of a 3-part Introductory Series, Early Psychosis 101: Basics for Supporting Students. Learn more about the speakers for this session and access information about the other sessions in the series here.
