Mental Health and Juvenile Justice: An Impact Evaluation of a Community-Based Intervention in Queens, New York

By Josephine W. Hahn

This report presents the results of an evaluation assessing the impact of a community-based mental health intervention known as QUEST Futures on recidivism and other juvenile delinquency outcomes among 392 justice-involved youth (15 years or younger) in New York City. Among other findings, results show that participation in QUEST Futures contributes to reduced felony level re-offending.  

Listen to a podcast with the author of the evaluation.
