- Brief summaryMental health problems are common in adolescents, and are related to a higher risk of poor educational, social, occupational and psychiatric outcomes in adulthood. Adolescents suffering from psychosocial problems are at higher risk of poor educational outcomes such as poor school performance, school absenteeism, school dropout, and low educational attainment. Consequently, educational attainment is related to financial security, social status, and occupational status, and therefore plays an important role in adult life. To improve educational attainment, future labor opportunities, and societal inclusion, it is important that adolescents with psychosocial problems are able to complete their secondary education successfully. However, attitudes towards disclosure of mental health problems hinders early identification of adolescents with psychosocial problems who might need extra support in school. This dilemma of whether or not to disclose mental health problems, is mostly due to the fear of being stigmatized. The department of Rehabilitation of the Hanzehogeschool Groningen developed the Supported Education Toolkit, which is focused on supporting students with psychiatric disorders in (higher) vocational education and aims to help these students to complete their education successfully and with satisfaction, by helping them set up and reach their own learning goals. Knowledge on the effectiveness of the toolkit in secondary education is however still lacking. The current project aims to contribute to the development of an evidence-based Supported Education Toolkit appropriate for secondary education. To facilitate this development, the current project furthermore aims to get a broader and better understanding of the influence of mental health problems on adolescents’ functioning in secondary education and to gain insight into potential barriers to educational support.
