Abstract

This study examines longitudinal mental health service use patterns of a school-based sample of adolescents. Based on the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale scores, a stratified sample of middle-school students was interviewed using the Schedule for Affective Disorders and Schizophrenia for School-Aged Children: cycle one (n = 579; mean age 12.83) and cycle two (n = 490; mean age 18.65). Service use also was assessed by mailed questionnaire: cycle three (n = 330; mean age 20.60). Service use decreased over time. Whites and males received significantly more treatment in the first cycle. In the second cycle, service use by race and gender was equal; in the third cycle, females received more treatment. Those with a psychiatric diagnosis (first cycle, 54%; second cycle, 33%) received treatment in the prior year. Under-treatment of youth with psychiatric diagnoses is a significant problem, with differences in service use by race and gender over time.
