Adults with Psychiatric Disabilities on Campus by Karen V Unger( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Individuals with mental illness and resulting psychiatric disabilities are entitled to the same rights as all other Americans, but services needed to integrate these people fully into the community are not yet in place, especially in the field of higher education. Postsecondary education is an opportunity for qualified students with psychiatric disabilities to enhance the recovery and reintegration process. More students with psychiatric disabilities are identifying themselves as individuals with a disability and requesting accommodative services. Supported education for these students may involve self-contained classrooms, on-site support, or mobile support provided by staff from community mental health services. Attitudinal barriers to serving these students exist. Operational issues related to serving students with psychiatric disabilities call for: consideration of the role of the educational institution, the disability support services staff, community agencies, and the student; reasonable accommodations for students with psychiatric disabilities; and a student code of conduct. Future trends are outlined; model projects are noted; tips are offered for students, counselors, faculty and staff, and community agency personnel; and 13 publications and 4 organizations are listed.

From Discrimination to Acceptance: Serving People with Psychiatric Disabilities in Adult Education by Karen V Unger( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper discusses the discrimination against individuals with psychiatric disabilities in educational institutions and how the transition from discrimination to acceptance is occurring. It examines the characteristics of those who return to educational institutions, why they return, and the specific needs of individuals with psychiatric disabilities. The paper explores some of the myths and realities about people with mental illness and discusses how adult educators can assist and support people with mental illness in successfully achieving their educational goals. Quotations from students with mental disorders illustrate what it means to them to participate in an educational process. Two responses to the paper are attached and include positive remarks as well as criticisms, including the criticism that the focus of the paper on discrimination in postsecondary institutions does not discuss the acceptance of individuals with mental disorders in adult basic education programs. Overhead information summary sheets are also attached. (Contains 11 references.) (Cr)
