Home-based therapy takes place at the home of a person in therapy rather than in an office. It can help people who have difficulty getting to private practices or mental health facilities.
Factors that could keep someone from getting care include money issues, age, chronic medical issues, agoraphobia, and responsibilities at home or work.
Community health organizations and child protective agencies provide many home-based therapy programs. Private practice therapists may offer in-home sessions if it seems to be the most beneficial form of treatment, whether access to care is a problem or not.
