Tanner Intensive Family Intervention Program (TIFIP)
Another essential service provided by the Tanner Center for Behavioral Health is the Tanner Intensive Family Intervention Program. TIFIP is designed for children and their families, providing in-home treatment that is often more beneficial than care provided in a clinical or inpatient setting. Though the child is the primary patient, the program’s integration into a family’s home life can often help create a healthier environment for everyone in the family.
