Feasibility and preliminary outcomes from a pilot study of an integrated health-mental health promotion program in school mental health services



Feasibility and preliminary outcomes from a pilot study of an integrated health-mental health promotion program in school mental health services



Family and Community Health 37(1): 19-30



The prevalence of unmet health and mental health needs among youth has spurred the growing consensus to develop strategies that integrate services to promote overall well-being. This pilot study reports on the feasibility and outcomes of a theory-driven, family-focused, integrated health-mental health promotion program for underserved adolescents receiving school mental health services. Parent and adolescent assessments conducted prior to and following the brief, 6-session promotion program showed significant improvements in family support, youth self-efficacy, health behaviors, and mental health outcomes. Clinician reports contributed to a characterization of the feasibility, acceptability, and future recommendations for the integrated program.
