Intensive In-Home Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Services help decrease the amount of time children spend in inpatient hospitals and residential facilities due to psychiatric and behavioral challenges.
IICAPS works with families and children to provide the skills and resources necessary to allow the child to stabilize at home. The team works in partnership with the family, collaboratively developing and implementing treatment goals to best suit the needs of the family.
IICAPS provides individual sessions with the child, the parents) and the family. Extensive case management services are also provided to help manage ongoing environmental stressors.
The program serves children who are unable to be discharged safely from institutional treatment due to a lack of home and/or community resources, children at risk for psychiatric institutional-based treatment, or children who have been unresponsive to clinic-based services. The program is voluntary and requires consent from parents.
IICAPS is available to children ages 3-18 residing in Hartford, West Hartford, Bloomfield and Windsor. Children must have an Axis I psychiatric diagnosis.
Children can be referred to the program by their families, schools, the court system, psychiatric hospitals, emergency mobile crisis, and the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF).
Referrals can be made by contacting Rachel Ortiz at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-236-4511.
