In-Home Therapy (IHT) is available to MassHealth youth up to the age of 21 who require more intense support and services than can be provided by traditional outpatient therapy. IHT is a structured, consistent, strength-based therapeutic relationship between a Master level clinician and the youth and family for the purpose of treating the youth’s behavioral health needs. IHT can be delivered in a one or two person team which means that for some families, there may be also be a Bachelor level Therapeutic Training and Support (TT&S) staff member who works closely with the clinician and family to assist in various interventions and building child competencies. IHT supports the whole family which includes parents, caregivers, siblings, and others who care for the youth. Interventions may include expanding the family social support network, crisis management, and communication skill development.
