Children at risk evaluation (CARE)

In the CARE study, we address the mental health and care needs of high-risk children in Norway. These include children entering out - of home care, children living in foster homes, and children taken into care or who have mothers in OMT.

Our primary objective is to develop and examine models for routine mental health assessment of these high-risk children, in collaboration between Child Protection and Mental Health Services. Secondary objectives include the assessment of prevalence, correlates and prognosis of mental health problems in children entering care, children living in foster - homes and children of mothers in opiate maintenances treatment.

There is need for specially trained trauma-centered multi- professional teams. Not only for initial screening/assessment when children are placed out - of home, but also for continued evaluation of the mental health need in these children. The fact that an increasing number of children of mothers in OMT are also entering care, suggests a need for services to monitor this population closely as well.

For children entering out- of - home care, we propose a systematic evaluation of two models. In one model, the assessment team is integrated in the CPS, in the other the team is integrated in the MHS. We will also assess the utility of performing screening versus immediate full assessment. Also included in the project are follow- up studies of mental health in these high-risk populations.

The project will provide unique information on the mental health needs of such high- risk children in Norway. It will also assess predictors for healthy development to guide supervision and services.

The Research Project lasts from 2016 - 2020 and includes three sub studies.

The study is done in collaboration between the University of Oslo and other Research
