Navigating the system - title - circle.jpg

Most programs addressing mental health in schools focus on recognizing symptoms, screening students, and developing school accommodations, with the rather blithe recommendation to then “refer the student for treatment.”  Unfortunately, mental health care is a complex system and finding a provider can be an incredibly frustrating process.  Families already struggling with their child’s issues often need assistance, and turn to the school for guidance.  This presentation will help nurses, counselors, and other school staff to:

  • Understand what is provided by the different levels of care, and which are appropriate for different situations

  • Develop an organized system for mapping the resources available in their area

  • Guide and support families through the process of accessing mental health care

  • Collaborate with the family and providers to support the student in the school setting

During the '22-'23 school year we must charge a $200 speaker’s fee.  Scholarships may be available.  Your support for state funding will help us return to offering presentations at no charge.​
