Supported Education Program

For many people living with mental illness, the thought of going back to school is overwhelming. Our Supported Education Program is the perfect first step for those who have an interest in pursuing a college degree or attending a vocational school. The classes, which take place on a college campus, prepare participants for the rigors of college.  In addition to strengthening academic skills, participants also explore career paths and receive guidance submitting financial aid and college applications. All class materials are included and there is never a cost to participants.

Participants learn to:

  • Manage stress
  • Reduce test anxiety
  • Strengthen concentration and memory
  • Improve reading and note-taking skills
  • Practice critical thinking
  • Develop test taking strategies
  • Improve computer competency

Graduates from our Supported Education Program have gone on to earn certificates, associate degrees, and bachelor degrees. If you’re ready to get back on track with your education contact Katina Haynes at 313-389-7500 or khaynes@comcareserv.org.
