Educationally-Related Mental Health Services (ERMHS) An Overview of Assessment, Goals and Services

Some students experience mental health needs that impact their social-emotional functioning and academic performance. 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.


  • Explore the general definition of ERMHS and how it relates to the unique needs of an individual student.
  • Examine the critical components of an ERMHS assessment and learn which service providers can provide each service.
  • Discover how to engage the student, family, and outside providers in the assessment process and development of goals and service.
  • Review relevant SEIS elements and discuss how to meaningfully align services to goals, as well as identify services and placement within the continuum of Least Restrictive Environment (LRE).

Any of our Regional Trainings can be given at your school site. These Site-Based Trainings are best suited for larger groups, and locations where a version of this training is not already scheduled.

Site-Based Trainings generally require a minimum of 10 participants at your school site. Should you wish to have a Site-Based Training, but do not have enough participants, the SELPA may be able to pair your LEA’s needs with other local SELPA Partners in order to offer the training at your site.

Contact your SELPA Program Specialist to discuss your professional learning needs, and to schedule any site-based trainings.
