The Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Center of Excellence is fully responsible for providing statewide professional development activities related to the Ohio Children’s Initiative Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths Assessment (CANS).
The Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Center of Excellence does not provide direct care services, referral or linkage services directly to youth and families. The Center provides consultation to providers of services, organizations, and state entities regarding best practices. If you or a loved one are experiencing a mental health crisis contact 988 to be connected to a local crisis help line.
For families seeking services for youth, we invite you to click here for individual Ohio county agencies providing Intensive Home-Based Treatment (IHBT) or click here for counties providing Mobile Response and Stabilization Services (MRSS).
