Community Connection helps Jane organize her school life

Jane started receiving Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) Services through The employment component at Community Connection in April 2011. She is diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, and has had two hospitalizations. Following her last hospitalization, she was feeling extremely overwhelmed. Her home and school life were in disarray. She felt hopeless. PEI staff supported Jane with planning which classes were needed to finish her course work at Cabrillo, and started to look into four-year universities in the area. Jane made the decision to apply for a transfer to San Jose State University. PEI staff assisted her with the application process. She was accepted, and will be attending SJSU in the fall of 2012. She has attended the orientation with her father and is waiting to choose her classes. PEI will continue to support Jane in her academic journey as she works toward her bachelor’s degree in art.
