ERMHS (Educationally Related Mental Health Services)
WYS’ Educationally Related Mental Health Services (ERMHS) program is designed to provide ERMHS services that are high quality, timely and supportive of the goals of the student’s Individual Educational Plan (IEP). The model for the service is based on private practice where a certain number of sessions are authorized, and all services are to be provided as indicated in the IEP. The amount and type of service is determined in the IEP and confirmed by program administrators. Services are typically in the form of individual counseling two to four times per month and are to be provided only on the school campus and during school hours*, unless otherwise approved by the Program Director. Parent counseling is typically required one to two times per month and is provided at the home* unless otherwise designated and preferred by the parent, and case management services are typically authorized at 30 minutes per month or more. The assigned therapist delivers and documents theses services both provided, and those not provided, according to the IEP.
*current social and environmental conditions allow for telehealth, which means services are provided via phone or Zoom until otherwise determined.
The ERMHS Clinician is responsible for:
• Provision of individual therapy, family/parent counseling, and Case Management consultation services as ordered by the IEP.
• Meeting all regulatory and Agency requirements regarding the documentation of clinical services delivered and legal requirements related to service provisions according to the IEP document.
The ERMHS Clinician may also be responsible for clinical assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning, crisis intervention and collateral treatment to WYS clients, and to perform other duties as assigned/needed.
Current California Licensure as a Marriage Family Therapist (LMFT), Social Worker (LCSW), or Psychologist required. Knowledge in working with adolescents and children and two years directly related clinical experience working with adolescents, children and their families preferred. Knowledge of community resources, case management process, community outreach and program planning preferred. Bilingual ability in Spanish (preferred).
