    Available for eligible children who need short-term behavioral support in addition to any other mental health services they are receiving. The goal is to help children avoid being placed in a higher level of care, such as residential treatment, or to help children make a successful move to a lower level of care, such as returning home after residential treatment. TBS focuses on changing a child's behavior while emphasizing the child's strengths and works in collaboration with the child, caregivers and primary mental health provider.
