ACSA Every Child Counts

Part III: Addressing the Mental health Needs of Students, with Emphasis on COVID-19 & Emergency Circumstances
(Recorded Presentation)
Event Single


In Part 3 of the four-part series, we will engage in an advanced discussion of social-emotional and mental health issues, as they arise in the era of distance learning and emergency closures. Due to necessary changes in instructional approaches, in response to health crisis or other emergencies that necessitate distance learning, students may be challenged with anxiety, social acclimation, depression, and other mental health difficulties. This series will discuss the legal obligation to address these mental health issues, and will focus on any case law addressing COVID-related issues, as well as discuss universal services for improving mental health support for all students. This includes district-wide goals related to training teachers and other school personnel on how to talk to and support students during the pandemic and how to assist students through mental health interventions. The experienced practitioner will leave this session with tools and tips on how to ensure appropriate mental health assessments and services for students in need.

This event is reserved for school district or public agency employees only. Please contact Client Services for more information.
