Intensive Behavioral Health Services (IBHS), previously known as Behavioral Health Rehabilitation services (BHRS) are individualized treatment approaches provided to children, youth, and young adults within the home, school, and community. Services are provided by trained professionals who are able to provide interventions across settings to address emotional and behavioral concerns. In order to qualify for services, a child, youth, or young adult must have a mental health diagnosis to address concerns across the home, school, and community. Therapeutic interventions may include promoting positive behaviors by increasing coping strategies and improving skill development.
Steps to start IBHS for your child: 1.) Obtain a written order from a qualified licensed provider. 2.) Submit the written order to an IBHS provider to begin services for your child. 3.) An assessment will be scheduled with your child and family to assess the child’s strengths, weaknesses, and areas for development. 4.) A treatment plan (ITP) will be created to develop achievable and realistic goals for all treatment team members.
