The youth and caregiver will receive an in-depth mental health assessment. The assessment includes pre- and post-screening tools.
The youth and caregiver will receive an orientation to IIBHT, in order to understand the roles and expectations of this treatment.
A Crisis/Safety Plan will be created by the youth/caregiver and treatment team. This plan identifies strategies to prevent emergency situations, warning signs and strategies to deescalate, and the use of natural and formal supports.
A Service Plan will be created by the youth/caregiver that is used as a roadmap to recovery. This plan is individualized, addresses needs identified in the mental health assessment (1), and is consistent with principals that are family driven/youth guided. The Service Plan will also designate times/locations for services that are convenient for the family. Services must be in person for a minimum of four hours per week.
Treatment Reviews that occur every 30 days
A Transition Plan will be created for continued success after the completion of the treatment.
