Intensive In-Home Child & Adolescent Psychiatric

A program for children and adolescents

A program for children and adolescents with serious emotional disorders and support for their family’s experiences.

IICAPS helps children who can be discharged from psychiatric hospitals or residential treatment facilities with additional in-home support, in acute psychiatric hospitals or residential treatment facilities with additional in-home support, and still at home with behaviors severe enough to possibly require hospitalization.

Program Goals
  • Stabilization and maintenance of children with psychiatric diagnoses in their homes and communities
  • Prevention of hospitalization through crisis intervention
  • Identification of factors interfering with the child and family’s use of more traditional outpatient services
  • Improvement of quality of fit between child and family to optimize developmental progress
  • The days kept going by with no sense of hope or direction.

    Your program helped our family feel like we were once again breathing. Even having small windows of happiness throughout our day helped us to remember what it was once like and hope is once again a possibility, thank you.
