Family Based Mental Health provides intensive in-home therapy, case management, and crisis intervention to help parents with children who have mental health issues or are at risk of hospitalization due to mental health symptoms. Co-therapists work with the family to help children remain in their homes, schools, and communities by preventing hospitalization and out-of-home placement. Family Based Mental Health is a voluntary 8-month program that generally includes 3-5 visits with the family each week. Counselors are on-call 24/7.
