As part of the ongoing Intensive Behavioral Health Services (IBHS) Implementation, OMHSAS has released an FAQ guide. This guide represents a composite of inquiries regarding the standards and will be updated as a companion piece to the implementation.
Additionally, the IBHS Region Summits will be wrapping up next week so if you have any additional questions, please email RCPA Children’s Division Director Jim Sharp. Jim will be attending the session on November 14; please forward questions to him so that he may be able to present them. The next OMHSAS IBHS WebEx is scheduled for Wednesday, November 20 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm; register here to participate.
The RCPA Children’s IBHS Work Group will reconvene the first week of December to continue its work on standards for our members, and will convey its findings to the Children’s Division via Alerts, Infos, and regularly scheduled divisional meetings.
