Synopsis: This qualitative study explored youth and family perspectives regarding the nature of service delivery and collaboration for youth with mental health needs who are involved in both the juvenile justice and community mental health systems. We developed four-way perspectives derived from comparing the dual-system experiences of youth, their parents, community mental health professionals, and juvenile justice service providers. We found a wide range of approaches and mostly informal collaborations with inconsistent outcomes. Findings strongly indicate the need to bridge the gap between these two philosophically different systems with formal collaborative policies, programs and best practices treatment modalities.
