WHY IS THIS STUDY IMPORTANT? Students that deal with anxiety or other invisible mental conditions often struggle in silence to get through academic programs. This can also trickle into their future jobs or career prospects. This study aims to help support students that identify as having invisible mental conditions, in completing their academic coursework and leading to gainful employment. During the study, the feedback we receive from students will help us create a guide that can be used by future students, professors, employers, and serve as an important mental support resource. Your participation will directly help future students in CTE programs!
