Intensive In-home (IIH) is a community-based mental health service for children. IIH provides a family-based approach to therapy, parent education, case management and crisis resolution for children at risk for out-of-home placement. Intensive In-home services are designed to restore the family to a successful level of functioning through their journey of teamwork in treatment.
This is a time-limited intensive family preservation intervention intended to stabilize the living arrangement, promote reunification or prevent the utilization of out-of-home therapeutic resources (i.e., psychiatric hospital, therapeutic foster care, residential treatment facility) for the identified youth through the age of 20. These services are delivered primarily to children in their family’s home with a family focus: defuse the current crisis; evaluate its nature and intervene to reduce the likelihood of a reoccurrence; ensure linkage to needed community services and resources; provide self help and living skills training for youth; provide parenting skills training to help the family build skills for coping with the youth’s disorder.
