DetailsSpecial education leaders and teams are invited to this unique 2-part workshop, focused on mental health. Come join colleagues to discuss trends and hear legal and practical viewpoints from presenters. Part One: Mental Health and Student Services School districts regularly face questions that surround mental health services for students:
- Who should receive mental health services?
- How long should a “general education student” receive mental health services before “child find” is triggered?
- Who can provide mental health services?
- Are all mental health services “confidential” or can the outcomes/discussions that occur during mental health sessions be shared amongst educational providers and/or parents?
- How should my district set up a successful mental health program?
Featured PresentersDuring this workshop, you will hear from an attorney and from a district Mental Health Services Coordinator who also holds his MFT, in order for you to leave feeling confident in understanding the logistical, practical and legal aspects of mental health services as it relates to school districts.
