This study is currently recruiting students that are undergoing Career and Technical Education (vocational education, trade school programs).

The goal of the project is to create a toolkit that will support students undergoing CTE programs that have mental health conditions successfully complete those programs and seek meaningful employment. In order to refine this toolkit, we are looking for qualifying students to test it with. Please see the flyer for more information. If you have any questions, contact Dr. Ni Gao at
