Description of Service
Behavioral Health and Rehabilitation Services (BHRS) under the Office of Medical Assistance provides a range of behavioral health care services for children under the age of 21. Typically, the children who qualify for these services require a more intensive intervention to sustain them in their homes, school and community. Mental health staff help the child/adolescent learn skills and coping strategies to prevent further deterioration and more restrictive services. Wrap Around services are comprised of:
Mobile Therapy: The Mobile Therapist delivers intensive individual and family therapy based on having assessed the needs of the child in the family. The Mobile therapist promotes the development of adaptive skills and relationships and coordinates the overall direction of the mental health treatment.
Behavior Specialist Consultant: The Behavior Specialist provides knowledge of behavioral management so as to assist in the development and implementation of the child's individualized treatment plan, which is focused on targeted problems and goals.
Therapeutic Staff Support: The goal of the TSS is to assist the child/adolescent through the therapeutic interventions noted on the treatment plan. This will include social skill building, symptom management, impulse control, assertiveness, problem solving, the promotion of self-esteem building and creative expression. In the home the TSS works together with the parent to implement specific behavioral strategies and to support positive interactions between the child and parent.
To enhance the success of any one or all of these services, the parent/guardian agrees to actively participate in the child's treatment in collaboration with the treatment staff. This will include communicating with staff on a regular basis, attending all home based sessions and the follow through of mutually agreed upon goals.
