Educational Consultation Services
At Healthy Minds Consulting we believe that collaboration between mental health and education professionals improves outcomes for children. We are experts at helping public service agencies and educational institutions understand each other’s roles, access services, and effectively communicate the needs of the child to create supportive learning environments that nurture successful human beings. Our educational consultation services include:
- Consulting with mental health professionals on the integration of each child’s learning needs with therapeutic practices.
- Consultation with education professionals on the impact of a child’s mental health on school performance.
- Training for mental health professionals on Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), educational advocacy, and the link between education and mental health. Learn more about our Trainings here.
- Training for education professionals on identifying mental health needs at school and the link between mental health and learning. Learn more about our Trainings here.
An example of the type of Educational Consultation Services we provide to professionals is our work with the Westside Regional Center/UCLA NPI Psychiatric Clinic. Westside Regional Center, in collaboration with the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Neuropsychiatric Institute (NPI), provides psychiatric services to persons with developmental disabilities who are in need of psychiatric supervision or medication. The clinic’s psychiatric treatment plans include a team of support personnel that assist with coordinating services that will support the clients’ psychiatric needs. Healthy Minds Consulting works with the clinic to ensure that each client’s educational needs are supported.
