Jim Keller Presents on Mental Health in a Remote Environment During the 2021 NAIS Annual Conference
Jim Keller, co-chair of both the Firm's K-12 and Higher Education Practices, will present during the 2021 NAIS Annual Conference. Jim will present during a workshop regarding student mental health, which is a significant and ever growing concern for educational institutions nationwide, particularly in today’s time of remote learning, pandemics, school shootings and increased student anxiety. A rising number of students are seeking out mental health services for a variety of mental health issues (attention-deficit; eating disorders; depression and anxiety; addition, just to name a few). As such, educational institutions and associated educators, faculty and school administration must approach student mental health issues in a legally compliant and medically supported way that benefits the individual student, as well as the general school community.
