Abstract: Although major gains have been made in identifying evidence-based services (EBS), there continues to be low levels of implementation by clinicians. Therefore some researchers have stressed the importance of a strong collaboration with consumers in the development, evaluation and implementation of services. Within the area of youth mental health, parents as consumers offer valuable perspectives on factors that influence their treatment-related decision-making for their children. The Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) may also have utility in explaining and predicting parents' intent to engage in EBS. The current study begins development of a reliable and valid measure of consumer intent to engage in EBS, guided by principles of the TPB, following a multimethod approach to instrument development focused on content validity, while using a sample of parents from the target population along with experts in varying fields related to childrens' mental health. Implications and recommendations for future research are discussed.
