Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter explores the perceptions of mental health services and providers among depressed African American adolescent males. Qualitative interviews were conducted with 18 urban African American males, ages 14-18, recruited from community-based mental health centers and afterschool programs for youth. The interviews included socio-demographic information, questions regarding depressive symptomatology, and openended questions derived from the network-episode model, including knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors related to problem recognition, helpseeking, and perceptions of mental health services. Implications for social work and social welfare practice are examined.
