Children's Behavioral Health

The Youth Outcomes Questionnaire (Y-OQ -2.01) is a measure of treatment progress for children and adolescents (ages 4-17) receiving mental health intervention and is meant to track actual change in functioning.  The State of Maine has adopted the use of the YOQ for its Children’s Home and Community Treatment (HCT) service.  The YOQ was developed by Dr. Michael Lambert and Dr. Gary Burlingame with more information available at:  https://www.oqmeasures.com/
