Synopsis: Youth and family voice in service design planning was incorporated in a needs assessment of youth grades 7-12 and their parents/guardians. Important findings indicate needs related to the challenges youth face getting along with others. Privacy and cost were major concerns about seeking help, as was location with 47% of the youth reporting never wanting to receive services in schools. Offering an array of services and service locations may improve access for youth.
