Structured abstract:

Background:  Researchers have begun to create and evaluate programs and interventions that focus on the specific needs and preferences of emerging adults with serious mental health conditions. The literature reports a high degree of agreement regarding practice principles that should guide the interventions for young adults with SMHCs. However, existing research provides little information about what the principles mean, or how these practices can be recognized.
Purpose:  This article describes a qualitative investigation of providers’ awareness and understanding of principle-driven practices in programs and interventions for emerging adults with serious mental health conditions. The goal of the study was to learn how providers plan the foundation of their practice, and how they describe principle-adherent practice.
