This manuscript describes efforts to support youth and young adults living with serious mental health conditions (SMHC) as they pursue their education goals. Case studies were conducted with three supported education initiatives across the US. Data were collected through individual interviews and focus groups. Key ingredients exist across various settings (e.g., mental health, post-secondary education) to support the pursuit of education goals for students living with SMHC, while individual settings have unique circumstances to address. Findings can inform stakeholders of relevant core components and implementation strategies across settings that support education goals for students with SMHCs.
