Mental Health Profiles in High-Risk Youth: Comorbidity and Sex Differences

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



Abstract:

Youth with behavioural disorders often have complex mental health needs beyond their primary diagnosis of Conduct Disorder (CD). The current study examines sex differences in the lifetime comorbidity patterns among a sample of 141 high-risk, behaviourally disordered youth in British Columbia, Canada. The results showed that approximately a third of the sample met criteria for all four diagnoses: CD, Substance Dependence Disorder, ADHD, and Major Depressive Episode. The prevalence rates of CD, ADHD, and Substance Dependence Disorder were comparable between sexes; however, more females than males experienced a Major Depressive Episode in their lifetime.
