What is IBHS?

The Office of Mental Health Services (OMHSAS) has created and licensed a
new children’s service, as BHRS is no longer an existing service.

This new service is Intensive Behavioral Health Services (IBHS) and offers therapeutic interventions and supports for children, youth or young adults under the age of 21 with mental, emotional or behavioral health needs. The services can be provided in the home, school or other community setting. IBHS includes Individual Services, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Services, Group Services, and Evidence-Based Therapy (EBT) provided through these modalities.

Intensive services are not appropriate for all children but they are appropriate for some.
