Stakeholders are increasingly interested in the societal impact of psychosocial interventions in the youth sector, in terms of costs and quality of life, as well as in outcomes research. As a result, increasing attention is being focused on economic evaluations studies in the youth sector. However, methods and instruments which are used in economic evaluations have been developed for somatic (health) care and moreover for an adult population, making it challenging to perform economic evaluations in the youth sector.  Steps are being taken to reach consensus regarding what needs to be undertaken to set a research agenda which will lead to further methodological development and the standardization of economic evaluations in the youth sector.

First a broad consultation was done. After that an overview of instruments to measure quality of life and resources in youth with psychosocial problems was made.
