During 2021, the Indiana Department of Health (IDOH) completed a two-year project called Adolescent and Young Adult Behavior Health Collaborative Improvement and Innovation (AYA-CoIIN). The CoIIN consists of a two-pronged approach, systems-level and clinical-level strategies to improve depression screening, follow-up for young people, and integrating behavioral health in primary care. To gain feedback from youth and young adults related to this initiative, Diehl Consulting Group was contracted to conduct a series of focus groups targeting mental health topics. A total of six youth focus groups were held virtually during July 2021. Three sessions with unique questions were conducted, and afternoon and evening groups were offered for each session. Participants were recruited by IDOH and included youth and young adults aged 16 to 22.
