PBPS Capacity Enhancement

PBPS Enhancement in Capacity Channel for Block Grant funding

DBHDS has been working with CPG to implement an enhancement to the Capacity Channel in the PBPS to assist the State in completing the monthly CARS report. This enhancement required adding a couple of additional fields to the Capacity channel when inputting activities that are funded under the Virginia Block Grant.

When inputting a Training, Technical Assistance, or Capacity Development activity that is funded under the Virginia Block Grant, users will be asked to indicate whether the activity is Mental Health/Suicide related. A Yes/No flag appears below the question.

When inputting Administrative Staff Hours that are funded under the Virginia Block grant, there are two additional fields that the user will enter. 1) The user has the option of entering a CSAP strategy from the drop-down menu if the Administrative Staff Hours are directly connected to one of the six CSAP strategies, or the user can elect to indicate that the CSAP Strategy is Undefined for general administrative activities. 2) The user will also be asked to indicate whether the activity is Mental Health/Suicide related using the Yes/No flag.
