Before Treatment: Adolescent Mental Health Help-Seeking
Cauce, Ana Mari; Srebnik, Debra
Prevention Researcher, v10 n4 p6-9 2003
Adolescence is a time of transition and many youth experience difficulty adjusting to new emotional, social and biological challenges and demands. While most of us manage to thrive during this period, it is not unusual for some to experience emotional and psychological problems that they cannot overcome on their own. This article provides a brief overview of the theory and research on adolescent mental health help-seeking with an emphasis on individual and cultural factors that affect whether youth with mental health problems manage to get appropriate care. A model for the mental health help-seeking process is presented, and this model is examined from a cultural standpoint. (Contains 1 figure.)
