In-Home Mental Health Therapy Services in Atlanta, GA

At Hillside, we believe that children, adolescents and young adults with intensive social and emotional needs are best cared for within their home and community environment whenever possible. With the support of the entire family system, we work with clients throughout the Metro Atlanta Community to bring hope and healing.

What Is the Focus of In-Home Mental Health Care?

The focus of Hillside’s in-home mental health care is to provide therapy and support services for children and their families when a child, adolescent or young adult has a mental health diagnosis. The goal is to reduce out-of-home placements, such as therapeutic boarding school or residential treatment, and to address the mental health needs of the client where they’re at.

While we generally provide services for a limited amount of time, sessions occur at home rather than in an office setting. Our clinicians can also meet your child at school or their favorite spot in town.

The aim of our in-home program is to help families address behavioral and emotional issues and to support and mentor our clients so they’re able to manage real-world challenges and come up with appropriate solutions. Besides providing regular in-home sessions, our clinicians are available to families 24 hours a day, seven days a week to offer guidance when it’s needed most.

The Importance of Using In-Home Therapy

Hillside’s in-home mental health therapy services offer timely intervention and essential support when behavioral or mental health issues may result in a child or adolescent being removed from their home environment. Our services are also excellent for clients who are transitioning home after being in an out-of-home placement situation.

Our comprehensive home-based services can help stabilize your family and promote a healthy home environment. Our clinicians also establish and work on personalized treatments goals which are important to your family. We help our clients and their families address a number of different concerns, including:

  • Difficulties at school
  • Aggression or acting out behaviors
  • Impulse control and behavior management
  • Anxiety or depression symptoms
  • Self-harming behavior
  • Symptoms of trauma
  • Communication within the family dynamic
  • Anger management
  • Healthy conflict resolution
  • Essential life skills — money and time management, communication and social skills

Benefits of Hillside’s Home-Based Mental Health Program

At Hillside, we ensure our in-home mental health program is tailored to the specific needs of your family unit. Before therapy sessions begin, a licensed clinician will come to your home and complete an assessment. We use the North Carolina Family Assessment Scale, which helps us determine the main areas which need to be addressed to help your family find stability. This evaluation also allows us to develop the best plan of care for your family.

You can expect many benefits when you choose Hillside to provide home-based mental health services, including:

  • Appointments and sessions scheduled with your family’s schedule in mind, either at your home or in a community setting
  • 24/7 access to our licensed clinicians
  • Clinicians who provide additional support and ancillary services to your treatment provider by working with your child’s current therapeutic treatment
  • An individualized therapy approach focusing on your family’s strengths and addressing targeted problematic behaviors

Services Included in Hillside’s In-Home Program

When you choose Hillside’s in-home mental health therapy program, we include a large variety of services to ensure each child, adolescent or young adult gets the personalized care they need. Some of our program’s services include:

  • Managing behaviors and family and community disruptions to prevent out-of-home placements and higher levels of care
  • Community-based skill coaching
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • Development of specialized parenting skills
  • Creating a family crisis and safety plan
  • Identifying and developing appropriate community resources
  • Advocacy
  • Helping both the client and family access needed services

Who Is an Appropriate Candidate for Our In-Home Therapy Program?

Our in-home mental health therapy program may be an appropriate option if your young child, adolescent or young adult has intensive social and emotional needs, especially if their mental health challenges have put them at risk of either hospitalization or out-of-home placement.

We can also help families who require intensive support and need help coordinating their child’s care. For children, adolescents or young adults who have recently been discharged from a residential program or have had acute psychiatric hospitalization, we can also assist in making a smooth transition back into home life.

Insurance and Payment Options

Hillside’s in-home mental health services are covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield. However, our program is also available via self-pay for all non-BCBS families. For your convenience, we accept:

  • MasterCard, Visa and American Express
  • Debit cards
  • And checks

Please contact our admissions department with any payment questions you may have.
