The California Department of Health Care Services, DHCS, has selected The Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) as the mandated assessment instrument for use with all youth receiving EPSDT Specialty Mental Health Services.

The California Alliance of Child and Family Services, in partnership with CANS developer Dr. John Lyons and Dr. April Fernando, is presenting a series of regional training opportunities to further the implementation of The Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) across California. The goal of the training is to increase the availability of certified CANS trainers among Alliance member agencies, County Mental Health Plans, and other public and private agencies.

Each CANS Train the Trainer session is divided into two days: The first day, familiarizes attendees with the CANS and certifies them in its usage. Day two trains attendees as CANS trainers for their agencies.

The CANS is a multi-purpose instrument developed for children’s services providers to support decision-making – including level of care determination and service planning – to facilitate quality improvement initiatives, and to allow for the monitoring of service outcomes.

Versions of the CANS currently are used in 36 states in at least one child serving system (child welfare, mental health, juvenile justice, and early intervention applications) and integrated systems applications in 20 states . A comprehensive, multi-system version exists as well. Easy to learn and well liked by parents, providers and other partners in the service systems, the CANS has demonstrated reliability and validity, is actionable and does not necessarily require scoring in order to be meaningful to an individual child and family.

CANS, moreover, is an open domain tool that is free for anyone to use.
