Innovation Behavioral Health Solutions (IBHS), LLC has been providing services to Clark County since 2008 and we take pride in our services and training tailored to the patient and/or family's needs, values, culture, and strengths. IBHS, LLC uses psychological measures considered Gold Standard in the psychological community using the latest technology.
Our Mission at IBHS LLC is to create access to mental healthcare through equity, which means ensuring everyone has equal access to well-being regardless of socioeconomic status or other barriers. In order to do so, we strive to eliminate mental health stigma through community outreach, specifically to Black Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) communities, providing psychoeducation, and ensuring diversity and inclusion not only in the community we serve, but also in our team of clinical and administrative staff.
IBHS is dedicated to educating and training upcoming practitioners in psychology. The IBHS internship training approach is based on the practitioner-scholar model, which places emphasis on evidenced-based and scholarly informed practice. Interns at IBHS, LLC will focus largely on assessment (i.e., approximately 75% of clinical work will be focused on assessment). While there are opportunities for individual, group, family, and couple’s therapy, we understand that there is a need for more BIPOC testing psychologists and those able to conduct bilingual assessment. Currently, only 5% and 4% of all psychologists are Latinx or Black, respectively (Lin, Stamm, Christidis, 2018). Of the 5% of Latinx psychologists, only 5.5% of these can provide bilingual services (Smith, 2018)). This results in the misdiagnosis and over pathologizing of BIPOC populations due to lack of culturally responsive and trauma informed assessment, in addition to implicit bias and the historical criminalization of mental health among BIPOC populations.
