Psychiatric morbidity, expressed as hospital admissions during a 30 year follow-up period, was studied among 322 former child psychiatric patients. These patients were admitted to adult psychiatric hospitals 50 times more often than comparable age groups from the general population. A total of 7 patients died during the study period including 2 patients who had committed suicide. By the variables employed, 37% of the sample were judged to have had a good overall outcome.
