      Navigating the System & Accessing Care

      PLEASE NOTE:  Presentations by McLean School Nurse Liaison Project are open ONLY to staff from schools enrolled with MSNLP, or who are in the process of enrolling.  People who are not school staff unfortunately may not attend. Navigating the System and Accessing Care Most programs addressing mental health in schools focus on recognizing symptoms, screening students, and developing school accommodations, with the rather blithe recommendation to then “refer the student for treatment.” Unfortunately, mental health care is a complex system and finding a provider can be an incredibly frustrating process. Families already struggling with their child’s issues often need assistance, and turn to the school for guidance. This presentation will help nurses, counselors, and other school staff to: Understand what is provided by the different levels of care, and which are appropriate for different situations Develop an organized system for mapping the resources available in their area Guide and support families through the process of accessing mental health care Collaborate with the family and providers to support the student in the school setting  Who should attend? School nurses, counselors, and teachers from schools which are enrolled with the McLean School Nurse Liaison Project. Please note you MUST use your school email to register!  If your school or district is not enrolled, contact the organizer for enrollment information. You may go ahead and register for this event while the enrollment process is proceeding.  Your school must complete enrollment prior to the event for you to attend.  If you are staff from the hosting school/district, you do not need to register to attend.
