Court Orders on Mental Health Related Services and Impacting Factors in a Metropolitan Juvenile Court

Abstract:

Are delinquent youth with mental health needs in the juvenile justice system actually getting services? Does racial disparity exist in who receives treatment or service? What are the factors that influence court decision-making on mental health related service assignment? Using data from Missouri Judicial Information System on delinquent juveniles formally processed in a metropolitan juvenile court over a one year period, we tested the association of race with the case processing, juvenile mental health status, and treatment ordered by court respectively. African American youth are found to be more likely to be processed formally and less likely to have historically identified with mental health disorder and received treatment. An array of juvenile risk/needs attributes from a statewide assessment instrument as well as offense history data were used in logit regression in exploring impacting factors on court decision for mental health related service. Factors increasing the odds of receiving a treatment order include being African-American, out of home placement history, moderate substance abuse problems and moderate or severe academic problems; while being male, being older, relatively more prior referrals, severely ineffective parent management, and a weak social support system decrease the odds.
