Factors predicting use of mental health and social services by children 6-16 years old : findings from the Ontario Child Health Study.
Correlates of mental health and social service utilization are examined based on Ontario Child Health Study data.
Findings indicate that psychiatric disorder as a predictor of service use may be confounded by school performance and parental use of services, thus calling into question the extent to which program planning should be based on prevalence rates of child psychiatric disorder.
Children from low-income families tend to make greater use of available services, suggesting that programs need to be tailored more specifically to their needs.
