For those of us working in school settings, it’s harder than ever to navigate the complex and growing need for readily available child and adolescent mental health treatment. We are seeing a continual rise in anxiety, depression, school refusal, suicide and other student mental health issues. Additionally, parents, teachers and community stakeholders increasingly expect school professionals to address these mental health issues in the school environment. This webinar is designed to provide some much needed clarity for understanding how to respond and integrate mental health services into a school setting.
