Abstract

There is little research reporting the ‘‘lived experience’’ of young people undertaking treatment for mental health conditions. This pilot study explores the phenomenological experiences of a small group of six young people aged 14–18 years who were resident of a youth stepped-care mental health program in the Australian Capital Territory. Using semi-structured interviews, data were collected and two main themes emerged: (a) ‘‘Life engagement’’ and (b) ‘‘Relationships.’’ Participants also provided responses on self report measures at baseline and follow-up and feedback on aspects of the program. Further research is suggested to build on this study to increase research outcomes.
