New Guide to Campus Mental-Health Treatment Outlines Students' Legal Rights
What are the steps for choosing a therapist? Will my parents find out if I seek treatment? Can my college require me to take a leave of absence?
The answers to such questions appear in Campus Mental Health: Know Your Rights!, a new guide that explains the treatment options for college students who experience mental-health problems. Released on Tuesday, the publication also describes the legal rights of students who seek help for those problems.
