This session will summarize mental health conditions that psychiatrists regularly encounter when consulting with special educators. We will encourage discussion about the need for interdisciplinary teamwork, which helps to promote mental wellness and positive self-esteem for youth. Case reviews, including students who are deaf, deafblind, hard of hearing and complex needs, will highlight the ways mental health professionals, educators, youth and parental figures engage in goal planning. Transition plan meetings, Individualized Educational Plan meetings and Individual Support Plan meetings allow mental health professionals an opportunity to connect with teachers and school staff.
