Intensive In-Home Child & Adolescent Psychiatric Service (IICAPS)

The goal of IICAPS to help stabilize children and their families so that the child can remain in the community and be able to use more traditional services such as outpatient therapy in order to thrive. IICAPS will work with the family to support the child with their individual needs, the needs of the family, the child’s needs in school and in the community.
