Webinar Purpose

The purpose of the Webinar is to secure input from a broad group of interested stakeholders about issues and concerns related to the transition of the provision of mental health services by county mental health agencies under Chapter 26.5 of the Government Code to the provision of related services by local educational agencies under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

Highlights sections of Education Code, Family Code, Government Code, and Welfare and Institutions Code to be amended and/or repealed.

AB 114

Made the technical changes to code to eliminate state required mental health services provided under Chapter 26.5 of the Government Code and to leave responsibility for special education and related services as it is required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Slide 6

Provides a chart that displays various sections from Education Code, Government Code and Welfare and Institutions Code related to changes in mental health services through the amendment or repeal of code sections.

Slide 7

To help us understand the changes we prepared a handout that shows the changes to Chapter 26.5 of the Government Code.

Slide 8

We also made a handout that shows the changes that were made to Education Code, Family Code, and Welfare and Institutions Code.

Slide 9

Essentially, all references to responsibilities of county mental health agencies and requirements for mental health services for students with IEPs have been eliminated from state law. (Only references to state hospitals and surrogate parents remain.)

Slide 10

Title 2 regulations related to Chapter 26.5 are no longer supported by statute and will need to be readopted, amended and adopted or repealed.

Slide 11

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) regulations do not include or define mental health services in the related services sections of the regulations. Though it should be noted that the list of related services is not considered to be “exhaustive”.

Slide 12

Other parts of the regulations provide no guidance either. There are only three references to mental health. The first is in a comment related to interagency agreements.

Slide 13

The second is the applicability of the IDEA to other agencies that are involved in the education of children with disabilities.

Slide 14

The third reference is to an allowable use of IDEA funds for state-level activities.
