Understanding the Use of Mental Health Placements by the Juvenile Justice System.
Herz, Denise C.
Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, v9 n3 p172-81 Fall 2001
A study examined juvenile cases processed in an East Coast state between 1992 and 1994 (n=33,423). Findings indicate mental health placements are used rarely relative to other court outcomes (i.e., dismissal, probation, other types of placements), and gender and race significantly influence whether an offender receives this type of treatment.
