This webinar will provide an introduction to mental health services for children, both in the school and community settings. We will identify some of the common categories of mental heath disorders and discuss requirements set forth by IDEA to help identified students. We will also look at some of the various services available, both through the school to help the child academically, and within the community to help the family receive the comprehensive help and support they need.
