Behavioral Health Rehabilitative Services
The Intermediate Unit in close cooperation with Lehigh and Carbon County MH/MR agencies provides Behavioral Health Services to children and adolescents, who are experiencing psychiatric distress or emotional difficulties. Behavioral Health Services help children and adolescents overcome self defeating behavior, interact age appropriately, interface positively with family members, and maximize their potential. Family, school, and community members are enlisted to move the child in a positive direction. All treatment is done in the child's home, school or other community settings.
The program consists of a combination of the following services based on individual child's needs:
| Psychiatric Services
|| Psychological Services
| Mobile Therapy
|| Behavior Specialist Consultant
| Therapeutic Staff Support
|| Case Manager
The Intermediate Unit is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare to promote these services. Psychiatric Outpatient Clinic

Services will be provided to persons with chronic or acute mental disorders that require active outpatient treatment.
Strong interagency collaboration with other mental health agencies, human service agencies and schools will exist in order to establish strong, responsible continuity of care connections.
