Applying to NITEO or NITEO Summer
The process for applying to NITEO and NITEO Summer is the same. Eligible applicants, young adults ages 18-24 living with a mental health condition, and members of their support team (e.g. families), are encouraged to visit with the program manager, Courtney Joly-Lowdermilk, to learn about the program and other College Mental Health Programs (CMHS) offered at the Center.
After the initial meeting, students submit the CMHS application and schedule a follow-up meeting with the program manager to further discuss personal, educational, and wellness interests and goals. Applicants may also be invited to attend subsequent interviews with other NITEO staff.
Formal acceptance letters are provided to students invited to join the program. These students are also given information about submitting a deposit to confirm their spot in the program. Candidates who are not accepted are referred to other resources and programming that might better meet their current needs.
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.
