Description

Children requiring psychiatric assessment and treatment have a complex set of needs, requiring counseling and care coordination. Some of these needs include school-based evaluations and special education and related services associated with childhood psychiatric diagnoses and other disabilities. This project assessed school-related topics that mental health professionals discussed most frequently with patients, the resources most frequently requested by mental health professionals, and development of targeted materials for patients and families.
