Abstract:The overarching goal of this study was to examine the relationships among self-determination, mental health service use, and GPAs of university students, with a secondary purpose of exploring students' perceptions of their self-determination and use of mental health services. The design of this study employed both quantitative and qualitative methods. A web-based survey was the predominant data source, with face-to-face interviews to complement the survey data. Students with high self-determination tended to have high GPAs and the GPAs of students who used mental health services did not differ from their peers who used no mental health services. Students who used mental health services in the community tended to have lower self-determination than students who used other mental health services. For students who share similar levels of self-determination, using a combination of mental health services on campus and in the community was predictive of lower GPAs.
