This information explains the current state of assessment and support for Ohio’s students.

A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help them. You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 — teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.

What is a surrogate parent?

An individual who serves as a surrogate parent for a child with a disability is appointed to act in place of a parent to make educational decisions for the child with a disability.   A surrogate parent is appointed if no parent can be identified, the parent cannot be located, the child is a ward of the state, or the child is an unaccompanied homeless youth.

Surrogate parents represent the child in all matters relating to his or her identification, evaluation and educational placement and in the provision of a free appropriate public education (FAPE).  School districts throughout our region are looking for individuals who are willing to volunteer a few hours of their time each year to attend ETR and IEP meetings.

If you are a parent, have an educational background, and/or want to make a BIG difference in a child’s life, you should consider becoming a certified surrogate parent!  Please contact, Karen Vicroy at This email address is being protected from spambots.
