Webinar:
Managing Suicidal Students on Campus

March 15, 2023 | 1:00 PM ET

$79/individual | $349/teams of 5+

Navigating Required/Voluntary Medical Leaves, Community Disruptions, Student Conduct and ADA/504 Accommodations

 

Join our team at D-Prep Safety as we discuss the challenges of managing a suicidal student on campus while juggling the various requirements of student conduct and ADA/504 accommodations and how these relate to voluntary and required medical leaves. It is important to know the limitations of the code of conduct, how accommodations may impact the student’s ability to stay on campus, and the importance of understanding FERPA as it relates to parental notification.

 

We will offer several case studies for conversation and example. The presenters will discuss medical leave policy language, the legality of safety contracts, mandated treatment requirements, and the importance of documentation and consistency in how suicidal behavior is addressed across various cases. Issues of cultural competency in assessment and intervention will be discussed as will the importance of offering referrals that address potential obstacles to care. Finally, we will offer a review of important cases related to mental illness and removal from campus.
