Abstract: This study focused on youths’ experience of receiving school-based mental health services and community-based mental health services. This qualitative study utilized a sample of eight girls and boys, ages 15-17 years old, who attended school within the district of Timmins. Data was collected using individual interviews and analyzed using thematic analysis. Results of the study revealed benefits to services, limitations to services, and some recommendations for changes to services. This research helped to explain what the participants, who have had experiences with mental health services, thought about the services they have had; it also provided some recommendations the participants made for changes to the mental health services based on their experiences. The conclusion of this study involved a connection between this study and social work practice, and offered suggestions for future research in the field of children’s mental health services.
