Applying to LEAD BU
The LEAD BU class offered through the Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation is a free, open-enrollment class. Students interested in enrolling in the class will first meet with the LEAD instructor, Courtney Joly-Lowdermilk, to review the class curriculum and discuss personal, educational, and wellness goals. During this meeting, students work with the program manager to enroll in the class. Candidates who are not accepted are referred to other resources and programming that might better meet their current needs.
Only students enrolled at Boston University are permitted to register for the LEAD BU course (HE 102) offered for 1 PDP credit at the Fitness and Recreation Center.

The Services Division at the Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation is an inspiring educational environment where persons who have had behavioral health experiences find hope, become empowered by actualizing their dreams through setting goals to live, learn, work and live well in their chosen communities. Participants are “students” who work with faculty and “Coaches” who help them achieve their goals successfully and with satisfaction. Students gain knowledge, skills and supports to live their lives fully. The Center does not provide medical treatment: We do not prescribe or deliver medications or therapy.
