Intensive Home-Based Treatment (IHBT) is a mental health service designed to meet the needs of youth with serious emotional disturbances who are at risk of out-of-home placement or who are returning home from placement. The goal of IHBT is to provide the necessary mental health services and supports to enable youth to live in their homes in the least restrictive, most normative setting possible. IHBT services are provided in the home, school and community where youth live and function. These services focus on the mental health issues that put the youth at risk, while promoting positive development and health family functioning.

IHBT integrates core mental health services (community psychiatric supportive treatment, behavioral health counseling and therapy, mental health assessment and crisis response) into one seamless service. Service is flexibly delivered at a time that is convenient for the entire family and is available around the clock. Learn More | View Powerpoint Overview

The Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Center of Excellence does not provide direct care services, referral or linkage services directly to youth and families. The Center provides consultation to providers of services, organizations, and state entities regarding best practices. If you or a loved one are experiencing a mental health crisis contact 988 to be connected to a local crisis help line.
