Intensive In-Home Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Services (IICAPS)
IICAPS provides intensive home based clinical and case management services for children and families. IICAPS uses a team approach, with a clinician, mental health worker, and psychiatrist working together to provide the necessary services. These include: comprehensive assessment of treatment needs; development and implementation of a goal oriented treatment plan; individual, family, and couples psychotherapy; psychiatric consultation; crisis intervention; school observation and consultation; and case management. IICAPS works with a family for up to five hours per week for six months.
IICAPS is available to children under age 18 at risk for psychiatric hospitalization, returning to the home or community from a hospitalization or placement, or to those in a lower level of service where more intensive services are needed to maintain them in the home or community.
