Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law — Advocating for the Civil Rights and Human Dignity of People with Mental Disabilities

Campus Mental Health: Know Your Rights! is designed to inform students who want to seek help for mental illness or emotional disorders about their legal rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act and other laws. The 27-page guide is also available online at www.mymindmyrights.org. It also includes information about where and how students can seek help, who can have access to information about their treatment; what kinds of academic accommodations they can request; what happens if they need hospital care; and what types of assistance and support are available for them.
