Educationally Related Mental Health Services

Many students experience social emotional needs within the school environment. It is appropriate to use a tiered approach to meet student needs at every level; in the gen ed classroom, with specialized interventions, as well as with individualized services. When these students have IEPs, Educationally Related Mental Health Services (ERMHS) are essential elements of their individualized plan to allow them to access their learning. Schools can ensure that each student’s unique mental health needs are met via a tailored service plan by accurately identifying each student’s mental health needs through assessment and implementing services to support meaningful goals in those areas.
