This book describes in detail a model of home-based care for children with serious psychiatric illnesses. The IICAPS model (Intensive, In-Home Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Services) was developed by doctors at the Yale Child Center Study in 1996 and has proved effective in reducing the need for inpatient and other institution-based services.
