Role of comorbidity with nondepressive psychopathology

Several studies have reported that comorbidity with non-depressive disorders predicts a worse outcome for juvenile depressive disorder (Goodyer et al., 1997a; Kovacs et al., 1997; Sandford et al., 1995).

(1997a) reported that comorbid obsessive-compulsive disorder was associated with persistence of major depression at 36 weeks' follow-up.
