FBMHS are evaluation and treatment services provided to a specific child in a family, but focuses on strengthening the whole family system to increase their ability to successfully manage their child's behavioral and emotional issues. Services are provided by licensed agencies employing a mental health professional and a mental health worker as a team to provide treatment and case management interventions. Services are provided in the home of the family.

Intensive Behavioral Health Services (IBHS) is an array of therapeutic interventions and supports provided to a child, youth, or young adult in the home, school, or other community setting. Under IBHS, qualified and licensed providers can offer individual, group, ABA, and evidence-based treatments for children and youth. OMHSAS has created an IBHS website and training link where you can find recordings of OMHSAS trainings, links to forms, and important information about becoming a licensed IBHS provider, as well as frequently asked questions. Providers are encouraged to check this IBHS website for up-to-date information.

Please reference the IBHS Packet Checklist below for timeframes and packet requirements.

RTF services are comprehensive mental health treatment services for children with severe disturbances or mental illness.
