Lifetime comorbidity among anxiety disorders and between anxiety disorders and other mental disorders in adolescents.
We examine the lifetime comorbidity among anxiety disorders, and between anxiety disorders and other mental disorders, in a large (n=1,507) community sample of high school students on whom extensive diagnostic data were available.
Three diagnostic groups were formed :
those with a lifetime anxiety disorder (n=134) ;
those with a nonanxiety disorder (n=510) ;
and those who had never met criteria for a mental disorder (n=863).
The intra-anxiety comorbidity rate was relatively low (18.7%), and was strongly associated with being female (92%). The lifetime comorbidity between anxiety and other mental disorders (primarily MDD) was substantial (73.1%) and was not associated with being female.
