Guide for use:
There may be more than one reason why a client seeks assistance. This data element is used to collect all of these reasons. While multiple options may be chosen for the presenting reason(s) (including that indicated as being the 'main' one), only one option may be chosen for the main presenting reason. However it is all one concept.
The presenting reason(s) is intended to focus on the reasons the client presented to the agency as opposed to the underlying reasons or causes that may have built up over a lifetime.
