Access from EThOS:
Adolescent offenders in custody are known to have a high prevalence of mental health problems yet recent reports suggest that these needs often still go unrecognised. This study set out to track help-seeking behaviours, attitudes to mental health issues and access to mental health services by adolescent boys following admission to custody. The sample comprised 115 boys aged 15 to 18 years who had been admitted to a Young Offender Institution. Mental health needs were assessed using standardised tools; attitudes to services and help-seeking intentions were assessed using a questionnaire developed specifically for the study.
