Michigan Supported Education Program

For many people living with a mental illness, the pursuit of an education gets pushed aside. The thought of going back to school can just be too overwhelming. Our Michigan Supported Education Program (MSEP) is the perfect first step for those who have an interest in pursuing a college degree or attending a vocational school.

MSEP is a free program designed to prepare participants for the rigors of college. Classes focus on areas such as academic skills, study strategies, critical thinking, and computer basics. The program encourages participants to explore career paths and offers guidance to those submitting financial aid and college applications.

Participants learn how to:

  • Manage stress and reduce test anxiety
  • Strengthen concentration and memory
  • Improve reading and note taking skills
  • Develop critical thinking and test taking strategies
  • Explore occupational interests and develop a career plan

Graduates from the MSEP have gone on to earn certificates, associate degrees and bachelor degrees from vocational schools, community colleges and universities.

Participant quotes

“In junior high and in high school, my teachers told me I wasn’t college material. I’m about to attend Schoolcraft College in the fall. I wish I could tell the teachers that doubted me, now watch me.”
— Michael

“I suffered from depression and anxiety. I ended up flunking out of my classes back then. I was scared to go back to school but when I entered Supported Education, they helped boost my confidence about enrolling,”
— Alexenia

“There were days where it was a real challenge for me to get up and sit in a classroom, but this is an opportunity that I wanted for myself. This program helped put me in the right direction and I’m very grateful.”
— Lenice
