The Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) has established new regulations for Intensive Behavioral Health Services (IBHS) to replace Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS) for the delivery of child and adolescent services in the home, school, and community. Changes include increased requirements for staff training, supervision, and credentialing. These new regulations were built from needs identified by community stakeholders (including school district principals, provider agencies, and consumers) during targeted focused groups for improved access and quality of care for children, youth, and young adults.
As a result, OMHSAS is offering IBHS trainings:
