IPMG has been approved for the Children's Mental Health Initiative

The Children’s Mental Health Initiative (CMHI) is an initiative to provide services to children who do not have formal involvement with the child welfare system, but due to their mental and behavioral health needs, require services to maintain safely in their home and community. When community services are not able to maintain the child at home, the CMHI may fund higher level out of home services for stabilization purposes only.

The CMHI provides services to children who are not eligible for Medicaid or have private insurance that does not provide coverage for mental and behavioral health services. The CMHI can also provide services for youth with exclusionary diagnoses that prevents them from receiving Medicaid funded wraparound services if they meet all other qualifying criteria for Wraparound Services.

Services Available:

• Assessment for eligibility
• Wraparound Facilitation
• Habilitation
• Respite
• Family Support and Training for the Unpaid Caregiver
• Behavioral health services as defined under Medicaid Rehabilitation Option
• Behavioral health services as defined under Medicaid Clinic Option
• Other necessary client specific services

Goal #1: Children will be served in the least restrictive setting available to meet their needs.

Goal #2: Children will be served without formal involvement with the child welfare or probation systems.

Counties IPMG can provide CMHI services: Benton, Boone, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Fountain, Hamilton, Jasper, Montgomery, Newton, Tippecanoe, Tipton, Warren, White
