Explain what a typical BHIS session looks like for families who might be new to it.
Children in the program typically range from ages 5 to 18, and BHIS sessions include a combination of both individual and family time. A BHIS social worker will sit down with children and their family or caregiver to collaboratively develop a treatment plan that will help them meet their goals.
How does BHIS make a positive impact for families?
The BHIS team works with children and families to improve a range of behavioral or emotional health concerns. This could include anger management, conflict resolution, decision-making and problem-solving skills, healthy relationships and boundaries, age-appropriate social skills, coping skills, self-esteem, and improving family function.
Do you have a message for families who are considering starting BHIS in your area?
BHIS provides an opportunity to positively make an impact for your child and family. Through positive changes, families using BHIS are able to achieve healthy and long-lasting changes so they can live their best lives.
