Synopsis: This study examined the efficacy of an eight-month multi-agency Learning Collaborative to improve mental health service use among urban youth. An analysis of data pertaining to: 1) show-rates for new intakes of children and adolescents, and; 2) attendance at any subsequently scheduled clinic appointment showed 147 more children attended intake appointments comparative to baseline, while rates of attendance at subsequent appointments remained steady although more youth entered the system. Collaborative learning environments can be useful for improving attendance in mental health care for youth and their families, as well as being an effective method for disseminating engagement practices across agencies.
