IIC MENTAL HEALTH REHABILITATIVE SERVICES

IIC mental health rehabilitative services are intensive community based, family centered, mental health services delivered as a defined set of interventions and within the context of an approved service plan written by a clinically licensed practitioner. These services target the children’s behavioral and emotional needs and are provided in the child’s home and community.

INTENSIVE IN-COMMUNITY (LICENSED THERAPISTS)
The IIC Therapist provides services in the child’s home and in the community. The IIC Therapist provides a variety of mental health services including individual and family therapy, evaluation and counseling. These services are time- limited and should focus on transferring skills to the family and transitioning the family to community based services and supports.
In situations where a family is assigned to both BA and IIC Therapist services both the BA and IIC Therapist work as a team to improve life domain functioning. These workers link to provide more focused and intensive complimentary services. They communicate on a consistent basis about family progress. The IIC therapist will develop the overall treatment plan, in addition to the specific Behavioral Assistance Individual Service Plan (BAISP)

BEHAVIORAL ASSISTANCE
This service works on decreasing risk behaviors. The Behavioral Assistant (BA) provides services in the child’s home or community. The focus is on behavioral modification, coping skill enhancement, and modeling. Behavioral Assistance provides opportunities to observe children in specific environments and provides feedback to the IIC Therapist and the child’s family.

NEEDS ASSESSMENTS
Needs assessments are evaluations completed by a clinically licensed and state certified clinician. This service involves meeting with the child and family in the home or in a community facility for purposes of assessment using a specific assessment tool to evaluate the child and family strengths, needs and goals. Recommendations for length and type of treatment are included, in addition to treatment goals.
