Student Mental Health and the Law: Best Practices to Ensure School Safety
Student mental health is increasingly a concern in today’s schools, and a proper understanding of student mental health issues is vital for the safety of schools and the well-being of any student population. This session is designed to provide school personnel with vital and necessary information and tools that they need to be able to identify and handle student mental health needs in an effective and legally-defensible manner.
Please join school law attorney Erin D. Gilsbach as she provides practical tips and tools for schools regarding establishing legally-defensible protocols, practices, and policies. The session will address issues such as identifying students with potential mental health issues, lawfully addressing students expressing suicidal ideation, dealing with the impact of cyberbullying and social media concerns, supporting students with mental health needs, and more. The session also provides a concrete and detailed look at common school practices regarding student mental health issues, including approaches that have been found to be appropriate under the law as well as those that have been found by the courts to be detrimental to student well-being and/or violative of the rights of students with mental health disabilities.
