FL: New state law requires NEW students to report if they receive mental health services

Aug 1, 2018, WJCT, Jacksonville, FL: Florida's New Mental Health Disclosure Requirement, The Show "¡Fuacata!" & A DJ Class For Girls http://news.wjct.org/post/floridas-new-mental-health-disclosure-requirement-show-fuacata-dj-class-girls A Florida law now requires students new to a school district to disclose whether they have received mental health services. The controversial new requirement is one of several school safety measures passed after the February Parkland school shooting. The required disclosure is already raising privacy concerns. And parents say they're unsure about what qualifies as mental health services. Julio Ochoa, editor of Health News Florida, and Alisa LaPolt, executive director of the Florida Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, joined Sundial to discuss the requirement.
