At Tanager Place—you are never alone.

When your child struggles with a mental, behavioral or emotional health crisis, you want to do whatever you can to help. But not every challenge has a clear solution. And sometimes we need support from others to make it through the storm.

Our outpatient treatment services give families the tools they need to overcome these challenges together. Where others see obstacles—we see opportunity for growth. Through compassionate, comprehensive treatment, we give children and teens the best chance to overcome their hurdles and build a brighter future.

Community members can access services via our online Outpatient Referrer Form or by emailing or phoning outpatient services, or (319) 286-4545.

Community Based Services

Behavioral Health Intervention Services (BHIS)

Parents want to do anything they can to help their child—but no one can do everything on their own.

Tanager’s Behavioral Health Intervention Services (BHIS) assist parents when a child or teen’s behaviors are serious enough to call for immediate professional intervention.

BHIS works closely with you in your home or in your child’s school to assess your needs and create a customized treatment plan. We help more than 400 families each year learn to manage difficult behaviors and emotions by teaching the life skills they need to become successful adults.

Eligibility: Medicaid-eligible children ages 4-20 years can receive BHIS services. Children living with a relative or in a foster home are also eligible for this program. For BHIS referrals, please complete our online BHIS Referral Form or contact us at or (319) 286-4531.
