Therapeutic Boarding Schools in the USA:

Narratives of Former Students

About the study


The research study aims to gain insight into the experiences, perspectives, and narratives of former therapeutic boarding school students. Therapeutic boarding schools in the USA are residential facilitates for teenagers who have been considered as having mental health or substance misuse problems. In these schools, students participate in educational classes as well as individual and group therapy, in a self-contained facility that typically runs year-round.

The study is now closed to new participants


There has been a lot of interest in the study, which is great! The data collection stage has now been completed. Therefore no new participants are being sought at this time. A sincere thank you to everyone who participated.
