Sack W H~~Beiser M~~et al
Data from the Flower of Two Soils Project was analyzed to examine the relationship between self-reported depressive symptoms & parent/teacher reported conduct symptoms. Children aged 7-10 were found to show more academic & social problems when rated as having high conduct symptoms. Children in the co-morbid group were found to have the highest rates of family stress & help-seeking behaviour. Suicidal ideation was as high in the conduct & co-morbid groups as it was in the high depression group.
