Synopsis: At least 90% of the parents of children referred to children's mental health services express a desire for more information about their child's difficulties. Randomized trials suggest that information about children's mental health problems can, in and of itself, have a significant impact on service utilization and outcome. Utilization studies, however, suggest that most parents do not have access to high quality information regarding children's mental health problems. This project employed qualitative methods (focus groups with parents and professionals) to explore the information transfer preferences of parents of children with mental health problems. Next we used a quantitative consumer preference modeling approach, discrete choice conjoint analysis, to simulate an optimal children's mental health information transfer strategy.
