BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SCREENING & ASSESSMENT FOR ILLINOIS CHILDREN AND YOUTH
ACMHAI has developed a position paper on behavioral health screening and assessment for Illinois children and youth. There are recommendations on universal age-appropriate screening of all children and youth working with primary care providers and use of the CANS as a functional assessment tool, as well as information about screening and assessment that should be of interest to Board members and others in your community.
In addition, attached is a power point on Screening and Assessment from the Livingston County Children’s Network Project funded by the Illinois Children’s Healthcare Foundation. The Livingston County collaborative effort has as one of its goals universal screening of all children and adolescents for behavioral health to promote early identification of issues and community supports for children and youth with behavioral health needs. Approximately 15% of the children screened are indicating a behavioral health issue.
