Intensive Care Coordination
DePaul offers Intensive Care Coordination (ICC) services as part of the High Fidelity Wraparound (HFW) model. ICC provides a structured systems of care approach to care coordination, and is specifically designed for youth and families with the most complex and challenging behavioral and/or mental health needs–particularly those who are at risk of out-of-home placement, or youth who are transitioning back into the home environment.
ICC is an evidence-informed practice with indications of superior outcomes for youth who receive HFW services versus those who receive only traditional services. ICC utilizes the HFW approach, which gives families a “voice and choice” in taking ownership of their care by selecting their team members, developing their plans and goals, and choosing the delivery of services. ICC includes service goals such as:
- Meeting the stated needs prioritized by the youth and family.
- Improving the youth/family’s ability and confidence to manage their own services and supports.
- Developing or strengthening the youth/family’s natural support system over time.
- Integrating the work of all child-serving systems and natural supports into one streamlined plan of care, to reduce the stress on the families, and increase the likelihood of a successful outcome for the family.
At this time, ICC is only funded by local CSA teams. Youth must be at risk of out-of-home placement or in transition back into the home or community. Out-of-home placement could include residential treatment, group home, foster care, detention, or acute psychiatric hospitalization.
