From STAT: For the past three years, Boston University has offered one of the few programs in the nation dedicated to teaching students who have had to leave college due to mental health challenges the coping skills necessary to get back into school or work.
“Taking time off from college for mental health problems is a loss. It’s a loss of independence, of routine, of friends, of a place, a purpose, and a clear-cut goal.
NITEO fills that gap. It gives the students a peer group and a place to go three days a week. It gives them assignments, accountability, and a personal coach to cheer them on. It gives them a path forward.”
