Abstract
Policy makers and researchers alike have advocated for regular mental health assessments of juvenile offenders. However, it is unclear which assessment instruments are being used in juvenile court cases, and how the information from these assessments is being used. This study examined 44 Canadian juvenile offender cases and found the most commonly used instruments were the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory instruments (e.g., MMPI-A; Butcher et al., 1992).). There were few cases in which mental health evidence was used to inform treatment needs, planning and treatability. There were also few legal challenges regarding the use of the mental health instruments.
