Abstract

The article addresses the disability discrimination laws that apply to how individuals with mental health problems are treated in various contexts where concerns about campus violence or disruption are at issue. It discusses what educators are required to do (legal requirements), what they should do (what ethically should be considered in balancing the interests of the individual with mental health challenges and others that might be affected by conduct that relates to those challenges), and what they can do (considering resources to assist educators responsible for providing a safe and positive learning environment for other students, faculty, and staff, and for assuring that the interests of others are approviately balanced).
