14. ‘Studying with mental health problems’ The development of a guide for student counselors in higher education

Handicap + Studie, Center of Expertise, supports universities to provide access to higher education for students with disabilities. It carries out various projects including a project on studying with psychological problems. One of the outcomes of this project is a manual for student counselors. This manual is being developed in collaboration with representatives of students and student counselors. The manual helps student counselors to identify, guide and refer students with mental health problems.
In this workshop, we consider the dilemmas faced by these student counselors and we get to work with the manual (in progress).
