NEW TRAININGS ANNOUNCED | CANS March Schedule Announced
Starting this month, the Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Center of Excellence is fully responsible for providing statewide professional development activities related to the Ohio-specific Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) tool and Decision Support Model that all Ohio CANS assessors will be expected to utilize.CANS.
CANS is a support tool in the clinical decision-making process to determine eligibility into OhioRISE and level of care and service planning. The Ohio CANS assessment tool has been developed for broad application across multiple systems, including youth involved in child protection, developmental disability, department of youth services, and mental health and addiction.
This ensures youth only need to go through one assessment across multiple providers. The tool gathers all dimensions of the youth and family story to determine needs and strengths and integrates multiple storytellers capturing the voice of the youth and family to produce a full consensus-based assessment. The CANS is updated routinely over the course of treatment to continue ongoing care planning.
