This group will focus on issues related to psychiatric services in schools. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the roles of psychiatrists who work in schools, and interdisciplinary collaboration among psychiatrists and other professionals working in schools, including primary health care professionals. One of the goals will be to consider what kind of training is needed for psychiatrists to be effective school consultants and providers. Other important issues include the development of guidelines for appropriate medication prescribing in schools, and ways to utilize psychiatric services optimally in the face of severe shortages of child and adolescent psychiatrists. This discussion group is open to psychiatrists, educators, school health professionals and all others with an interest in this topic. We hope this forum will encourage psychiatrists who work in schools and those who interact with them to share their experiences and challenges. We hope this joint effort will lead to the development of effective recommendations and, ultimately, improved psychiatric support in schools. -
