  • PEI OMA/EPSDT Outcome Measures Learning Lab Starting January 9, 2024, the DMH Outcomes team will provide additional support for all the Directly Operated (DO) and Legal Entity providers via our interactive PEI/OMA – EPSDT virtual drop-in lab, on Microsoft Teams. Learning Labs will be held the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month, from 1:00pm-2:00pm. These drop-in sessions provide a space to ask questions about the applications or forms (PEI OMA or EPSDT Outcome Measures), learn tips on using the applications, or ask questions specific to your provider site.
  • CANS is a structured assessment used for identifying youth and family actionable needs and useful strengths. It provides a framework for developing and communicating about a shared vision and uses youth and family information to inform planning, support decisions, and monitor outcomes. DMH has made the decision that providers will complete the CANS-IP.  This includes the items on the CANS 50 plus 12 yes/no questions for screening for trauma and allows for the assessments of needs for multiple caregivers. It is completed through a collaborative process which includes children and youth ages 6 through age 20, and their caregivers (at a minimum). The CANS cannot be completed without being certified by Praed Foundation to administer the CANS. This also requires an annual recertification.
  • PSC-35 is a psychosocial screening tool designed to facilitate the recognition of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral problems so appropriate interventions can be initiated as early as possible. Parents/caregivers will complete PSC-35 (parent/caregiver version) for children and youth ages 3 through age 18. Please be aware that there is no formal certification process to be able to administer the PSC-35. The Outcomes team created the video below at the request of providers to cover the basics of the PSC-35. It also addresses the different facets of information about the PSC-35 that are important to know.

CANS/PSC Training Series Developed by the EPSDT Outcomes Team, this training series will prepare staff with the necessary skills and knowledge needed to complete the CANS and PSC-35 as well as provide a good foundation on how to use both measures.
