It is estimated that one in five youth will experience some type of behavioral health concern by age 18. Additionally, youth often do not receive treatment informed by any type of evidence. The goal of this presentation will be to highlight the research to practice gap and introduce the audience to implementation science concepts. Studies within youth mental health across the United States will demonstrate implementation science questions and methods to narrowing the 17-year research-to-practice gap.
Physicians (psychiatrists, pediatricians, child neurologists), psychologists, social workers, other mental health clinicians and researchers, and students and trainees.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Identify implementation science terminology and domains of interest
- Understand how implementation science has been applied in youth mental health
