Synopsis: We explore how suicide-related psychosocial problems relate to depressed young adults' use of psychiatric services. Regressions for use of antidepressant medication and receipt of mental health or substance abuse counseling were estimated. Youths with more problems were substantially more likely to receive antidepressant medication (p<.001) and counseling (p<.001). Additional estimates suggested that problems increase the likelihood of a clinical encounter for depression, but do not increase the likelihood of counseling during or after those encounters. Symptoms of elevated suicide risk in young adults may be substantially undertreated even when youth obtain treatment for depression.
