In Home Behavioral Health

The In Home Behavioral Health Program (IHBH) is a grant generated program providing services to families whose children are at risk of out of home placement. Children served in this program range from birth to eighteen years of age. Each family enrolled in the IHBH program has an individualized plan of care which include the following:

  • Skill development, through in-home and classroom training, improving mental health, parenting and self sufficiency.
  • Parenting challenges will be addressed through the use of the Love and Logic Parenting Program, Active Parenting Curriculum.
  • Mental health concerns will involve collaboration with the professional mental health provider and the IHBH Case Manager.
  • Family concerns addressed include substance abuse, domestic violence, low self esteem, mental health diagnosis and child abuse and neglect.
  • Direct services include assessments and evaluations.

All families are identified by Washington County Department of Social Services Workers who make the referrals to this program and identify the basic needs of the family that are needed to improve for children to remain or be returned to home.
