Intensive In-Home Services is a Virginia Medicaid funded program which provides mental and behavioral health services to children who are at risk of out of home placement.
This program seeks to promote individual and family stabilization within the home of the client and reduce behaviors which place them at risk of removal from the home.
Who is Eligible
Children, youth, and adolescents, ages 5-18, who demonstrate difficulties in managing behaviors within the home. The eligible client will have a qualifying mental or behavioral health diagnosis. These individuals have difficulties in establishing and maintaining interpersonal relationships to the extent that they are at risk for out of home placement or hospitalization; exhibit such challenging behavior that repeated interventions by mental health, social services, educational system, or judicial system have become involved; and exhibit cognitive challenges where they do not recognize personal danger or the risks their behaviors put them.
