College Survey: 64 Percent of Students with Mental Health Problems Withdraw from School
As a college student with mental health problems, I know first hand how hard it can be to continuously stay in college. Even though I can recieve DSPS (disability support services) the college cannot force professors to allow me to make up exams or work when hospitalized, which is really the only accomadation I need. It is difficult trying to maintain school courses and keep up with the work, I’m often hospitalized at least once a semester and struggle with symptoms throughout. Last time I signed up for DSPS, the staff looked at my paperwork filled out by my psychiatrist and asked if it was safe for me to attend school or if I was able to.
