This session addresses how college students with mental illness are part of the DE community. Little research explores mental illness in students despite the rising number reporting mental health concerns. Come learn about mental illness in academia and why we should broaden our conception of DE to include this population.

Current data about college student mental illness will be disseminated alongside the literature about this population. DE theory will be discussed to bridge the gap between DE and college students with mental illness. Afterwards, the floor will be opened for discussion of why these students belong as part of the DE community as well as participant experience in working with college students with mental illness to facilitate dialogue about how reconceptualizing DE in this way requires attention to the supports we can provide college students with mental illness
