Mental Health Consent in PA: Ensuring Parents Understand the Changes That Happen When Their Child Turns 14
Wednesday, April 26th, 2023 at 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Presented with PA Parent and Family Alliance, Christina Paternoster
What does PA say about a child’s ability to consent to their mental health treatment, under what circumstances does that change, and what are parent rights and responsibilities. We will cover Act 65 of 202, HIPPA, and more!
Attendees will be able to:
– Identify who can consent to mental health treatment in PA
– Discuss how parents, caregivers and other providers can use the law to improve mental health services that children receive
– Recognize the most common challenges that arise due to misunderstanding of Act 65 of 2020 and how to address those challenges
