Even though research indicates that the majority of youth in the juvenile justice system have been diagnosed with psychiatric disorders, they often do not receive the treatment and services they need. This CEU course examines changes in the prevalence and persistence of disorders during the 5 years after detention; describes youth’s perceptions of barriers to mental health services; and compares mortality rates for delinquent youth with those for the general population.
