Outcomes of Children Participating in Mental Health Residential and Intensive Family Services: Preliminary Findings
Preyde, Michele; Adams, Gerald; Cameron, Gary; Frensch, Karen
Residential Treatment for Children & Youth, v26 n1 p1-20 2009
It has been estimated that approximately 20% of children experience some form of mental health problem, with 14% in the clinical range. Residential mental health treatment is often reserved for those with the most severe presentation of disorder, and intensive home-based alternatives have been developed to cope with increasing demand. The purpose of this study was to examine the long-term developmental trajectories, personal functioning, and life circumstances of the children and youth who accessed residential mental health treatment or the home-based alternative along a number of domains (e.g., clinical outcomes, school personal well-being), and determine if differences between the groups exist. (Contains 5 tables.)
