Measures

The assessment measures will be administered to all children receiving mental health services with the exception of inpatient services. CYF mHOMS Measures Manual is available HERE.

The assessments for the Children, Youth & Families Behavioral Health Services System of Care Evaluation include:

  1. The San Diego Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (SD-CANS), completed by the clinician for youth ages 6-21. This measure is administered at Intake, UM/UR or 6 months (whichever comes first), and Discharge.

CYF mHOMS Data Entry System

The CYF mHOMS DES can be accessed through the main mHOMS login page: mhoms.ucsd.edu.

For optimal performance, we recommend using Google Chrome to run CYF mHOMS.

After administering the assessments, each agency will enter their own data into the web-based CYF mHOMS Data Entry System (DES). This allows every agency to keep the original copies of the completed measures and to have full access to the response data from their clients for client level analysis and program level analysis. It is important that the data is entered into the CYF mHOMS DES in a timely manner.

It is recommended that program sites enter data as soon as possible, but no later than 30 days. Waiting longer than 30 days is out of compliance with MHP Requirements..
