Intensive In-Home Program

Intensive In-Home care helps children overcome mental health challenges right at home

Intensive In-Home (IIH) program is a community-based program that uses an evidence-based model to work with children ages five to 20 years old. The program helps to stabilize and manage mental health symptoms, improve family interactional patterns, improve school performance and prevent psychiatric hospitalization or out-of-home placement.

Intensive In-Home (IIH) is a six-month partnership between our mental health team and families, to first understand then address troublesome behaviors or psychiatric and emotional problems. In addition to weekly child, parent and family counseling, IIH teams are on-call 24 hours each day to provide crisis assistance. Support can target substance use by addressing family dynamics and mental health symptoms that contribute to substance use. Caregiver interventions are also put in place to assist caregivers with identifying behavioral management strategies.
