A student at a college approached the professor at the end of a class to tell her that he is bi-polar and may need accommodations during the year. The professor responded by saying that she could tell he was on some type of medication. The remark, which was not intended to discriminate, had a devastating impact on the already distressed student, causing him to leave the class and ultimately the college.

The college agreed to include information relating the Code and internal and external mechanisms to all new students in their orientation package. All staff would attend anti-stigma training.
