Synopsis: We conducted focus groups exploring the experience of parents waiting for children’s mental health services, resources they found useful while waiting, and their recommendations regarding the design of waiting list options that might be helpful while waiting for CMH services. Grounded theoretical analysis revealed mechanisms via which their child’s difficulties worsened, a time consuming and costly search for alternative services, potentially useful waiting list options, and a strong desire to participate in the waiting list service design process.
