Top 5 Legal Strategies to Manage Student Mental Health During COVID-19

Top 5 Legal Strategies to Manage Student Mental Health During COVID-19 Webinar

1 hour 5 minutes

Before the school closures, we recognized an epidemic of mental health difficulties among our students. Now, as school personnel and parents struggle to navigate the technical and legal requirements of remote student support, how can you continue to prioritize student mental health? Are the notices and consent requirements for counseling and accommodation different in our remote era? Are video platforms causing issues? How can you manage exposure while following best practices and addressing student need?

In this 1-hour complimentary webinar and Q&A session, nationally recognized Education Law practitioner John Comegno, Esq. will address pressing questions and provide practical steps to stay compliant and advance educational best practices.

This webinar is for you if you’ve wondered:

  • What issues are affecting student mental health?
  • May teachers and staff refuse to remotely address student mental health issues?
  • What are the legal obligations of school nurses, school counselors, psychologists, and social workers during this remote environment?
  • Do FERPA or HIPAA prohibit tele-therapy, including video-based therapy and/or group therapy?
  • Should we stop referring students for IDEA/Section 504 evaluation during the closures?

Space is limited for this live event and Q&A session, so please register as soon as possible. If you can’t make the live event, don’t worry — register anyway and we will send you the webinar recording.
