There is a gap in the research regarding the factors influencing why people utilize or reject mental health treatment (Lund, Hall et al, 2018). The gap this study will specifically address is what mental health providers indicate are the strategies influencing individual decisions to utilize or reject mental health services.

 

The problem is that it is not known how mental health providers describe the strategies that influence individual decisions to utilize or reject mental health services.

 

 

The purpose of this qualitative descriptive study is to examine how mental health providers describe the strategies that influence individuals’ decision to utilize or reject mental health services in south Texas. Comment by Daniel Smith: Good!

Factors Influencing Individuals’ Decision to Utilize Mental Health in South Texas

Submitted by Comment by Daniel Smith: James – please see my feedback summary in the attached document. Dr. Smith

James Dada Comment by Daniel Smith: 1/20/21James – thanks for the opportunity to review your proposal. There are still several areas of needed revision in Chapters 01 summarized below. Let’s have a Zoom meeting to discuss them to apply to Chapter 03. There are several areas of academic reasoning and writing that need revision. One technical area of revision is the occasional use of the past tense in chapters. As a methodologist, I am not an editor, but for clarity of writing and for the rubric standards, the entire document should be checked for writing. Be sure to set up the argumentation that supports your rationale for this research versus “teaching” the reader about topics. Chapter 01 includes many facts, often without citations, that do not contribute to your research. In Chapter 01, you offer the “gap” statement that concurrent impact of structural and attitudinal factors influencing behavior for mental health problems especially for treatment purposes. However, you do not align with this research topic in other sections of your study. You included a unit of analysis in Chapter 01, but incorrectly described it as a group – your “unit” are individuals. Let’s discuss your research questions in a Zoom. Six is a lot of questions and not all of them align with your purpose statement. There is some misalignment of your purpose statement. You also describe your purpose statement differently by section: This study will address the challenges that affect healthcare providers and also parents of the underage mental health patients and The purpose of this qualitative descriptive study is to examine how mental health providers describe the factors influencing individuals’ decision to utilize or reject mental health services in south Texas.A qual descriptive approach is a great one for this topic. For your multiple case approach, will they be the same health system? If not, multiple IRB’s will be very challenging during a pandemic. Can you collect all data from one site? Or two? Why six? Also, your delimitations may be unnecessarily limiting participants in some cases. Per my prior feedback, the same participants can be part of the focus group? Or, separate? Dr. Smith
