Mental Disorder, Comorbidity, and Arrest among Indigenous Adolescents

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Recent estimates suggest that both mental disorder and risk of arrest are more common among Indigenous youth than among non-Native populations. But little is known regarding the prevalence of specific mental disorders among Indigenous youth who have been arrested, or which disorders are associated with the risk of arrest. This study examines the association between mental disorder, comorbidity, and arrest using a longitudinal sample of Indigenous youth from the Upper Midwest and Canada. Among this sample, 74.2% of arrested youth had a least one disorder and 49.5% had two or more disorders. Meeting criteria for substance abuse/dependence, conduct disorder, and two comorbid disorders were each associated with an increased risk of arrest. Arrest poses a substantial risk for mentally disordered adolescents, specifically those with externalizing disorders and comorbid mental disorder.
