Back to School

Some people have to drop out of high school, college, or a vocational program because of their illness. They often wonder if they will ever be able to finish their education and get their degree.

If you are one of these people, the answer may well depend on the following:

  • How severe your illness is
  • How well your medicine is working for you
  • How much support you have from others
  • How well you are able to avoid relapses
If you are planning to go back to school, you may have to make a few changes to keep your stress level low. Here are a few tips from people like you:

"It was easier to take one class at a time, because I had a lot of time to do the assignments."

"I lived at home instead of in the dorm, because it was quieter and my concentration was better."

"Think about switching to a smaller school. I went to a big university, but now I go to a small school where the classes are smaller and I like it much better."
