Abstract

This study examined adolescents with diabetes and their parents' reactions to mental health screenings, assessments, and feedback. Most parents and adolescents did not report negative affect, but 15- and 16-year olds and referred adolescents showed greater levels of concern with assessment outcomes. Among those referred to mental health services, parents anticipated barriers in costs, insurance, and lack of qualified providers. Adolescents reported scheduling conflicts, time, and confidentiality concerns. Respondents perceived feedback as an important component of the clinical process and findings indicated a need for clinicians to incorporate psychosocial screenings and feedback in healthcare visits for adolescents with diabetes.
