Intensive Behavioral Health Services

    • Intensive Behavioral Health Services for Children and Adolescents (IBHS) provides individualized, therapeutic mental health, or behavioral interventions/services developed and recommended by an Interagency Team and prescribed by a licensedprofessional.

      IBHS services are mental health counseling services which are designed to provide individualized treatment to a child or adolescent. The Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit #21 provides these services working in close cooperation with Lehigh and Carbon County Agencies.

      Our clients experience psychiatric distress or emotional difficulties. Treatment may include supporting a client in overcoming self‐defeating behavior, learning to interact at their age appropriate level, learning to positively interact with family members, and to maximize their potential. Family, school, and community members are enlisted to move the child in this positive direction. All treatment is done in the child's home, school, or other community settings. 

      For more information please contact IBHS Program Coordinator at 610-769-4111 ex 1254.
