The rate of college students with disabilities and mental health diagnoses is steadily increasing across the U.S. However, despite available services and supports, the outcomes of college students with disabilities and mental health diagnoses lag behind their peers without such needs. Unfortunately, little is known about the needs of college students with disabilities and co-occurring mental health diagnoses, including barriers they experience and strategies or services they find helpful. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to understand the experiences of students with disabilities and co-occurring mental health diagnoses, including the impact of their needs and coping strategies used in college. We used a phenomenological approach to analyze qualitative data from nine college students with co-occurring diagnoses. Five primary subthemes emerged related to the impact of participant needs associated with their co-occurring diagnoses and seven subthemes emerged related to mental health coping strategies.
