This chapter explores the perceptions of mental health services and providers among depressed African American adolescent males. Qualitative interviews were conducted with 18 urban African American males, ages 14-18, recruited from community-based mental health centers and after-school programs for youth. The interviews included socio-demographic information, questions regarding depressive symptomatology, and open-ended questions derived from the network-episode model, including knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors related to problem recognition, help-seeking, and perceptions of mental health services. Implications for social work and social welfare practice are examined.
