Weiner, Enid; Weiner, Judith
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v12 n1 p2-9 Sum 1996
A study using individual interviews with 24 university students with psychiatric disabilities identified five areas of concern: problems with focusing attention and organization, low self-esteem, problems with trust, stigma, and high stress levels. Findings point to need for comprehensive services, including peer support group, one-to-one relationship with a counselor and academic advisor, career counseling, and academic accommodations.
