What is BHRS?
Behavioral Health Rehabilitative Services (BHRS), also called wraparound, is a process designed to improve the lives of children and adolescents with complex psychological or behavioral needs.
Services are available 7 days a week and become part of the child’s daily routine. The process starts with the building of a treatment team that will work together to develop an individualized treatment plan. The team includes highly-trained mental health professionals, support staff, family members, and the child. Their goals include:
Assessing the child’s needs and strengths
Setting goals for the child
Setting goals for the family
Evaluating treatment on an on-going basis
