HANDS: A brief intensive therapy model to support live-in treatment during COVID-19

The Challenge

The pre-COVID care model for children with complex/challenging mental health-related behaviours, was 3-6 months of live-in treatment, with youth returning to their homes on weekends. This model could not be supported from an infection control perspective due to the risk of transmission during the pandemic. Virtual supports to these families were insufficient, leading to potential for family breakdown.
