Youth detained in juvenile correctional facilities are known to have an elevated rate of mental health symptoms, but far less is known about the mental health status of juveniles under community supervision. In this study, 812 youths participating in alternative to detention programs in New York City were screened for mental health disorders. Forty-eight percent of boys and 62% of girls were indicated for possible mental health problems. The most frequently appearing flags were for mania and posttraumatic stress disorder. Besides reporting prevalence rates for multiple disorders, the study also examines the relationship between mental health and re-arrest.
