CLE: Children and Mental Health

Mental illness in children is more common than many may think, with anxiety disorders, depression, and attention deficit disorders being among the most prevalent. Developmental and psychotic disorders are less common, but can impact the child and their families in much greater ways. Don’t miss this seminar on December 13, 2017 in Chicago or via live webcast that discusses a number of key issues that attorneys need to be aware of when handling cases involving mentally ill children, including: how the Illinois Mental Health and Developmental Disability Act addresses children’s rights; the confidentiality of minor’s mental health records; the communication barriers with children who are diagnosed with mental illness; and how to promote better dialogue between attorneys and mental health professionals.

The program is presented by the ISBA Mental Health Law Section and co-sponsored by the ISBA Standing Committee on Disability Law. It qualifies for 3.0 hours MCLE credit, including 1.0 hour Professional, Civility, or Legal Ethics PMCLE credit.
