  3. The Personal Experience Screening Questionnaire (PESQ), administered to youth ages 12-18 in Outpatient Clinics embedded with an AD counselor, by their AD counselor at Intake and Discharge.

CYF mHOMS Data Entry System (DES)

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 within two weeks of data collection. Waiting longer than two weeks may make it more likely that programs misplace forms that have already been completed.
