Abstract

Young people represent a vulnerable age group for mental health concerns and tend not to seek help. Exploring factors that influence young people's engagement in therapy and clinical outcomes is crucial. This study examined the relationships between young people's expectations, preferences, and actual experience of therapy on their clinical outcome, mental health care service use, and help-seeking intentions. Gender and age effects were also explored.
