Introduction: Epidemiological studies describe different prevalence of childhood
psychiatric disorders. The prevalence varies 7% to 26% worldwide. The current study
aimed at investigating the prevalence of psychiatric disorders in children and adolescents
of North Khorasan Province, Iran.
Methods: In the current cross sectional study, a total of 1010 children and adolescents
aged 6 to 18 years were enrolled using multistage cluster sampling method. The
participants were selected from urban and rural areas of Bojnurd city. Psychiatric
disorders were diagnosed by clinical psychologists through interviews with parents and
children. The Persian version of Kiddie-SADS- present and lifetime version (K-SADSPL)
was used to collect data.
Results: The results of the current study showed that the prevalence of psychiatric
disorders among children and adolescents was 16.3% and the prevalence of each disorder
including mood, psychosis, anxiety, developmental neurodegenerative, behavioral,
substance abuse, and other disorders were 0.6%, 1%, 14.2%, 7.9%, 4.3%, 0.7%, and
6.6%, respectively.
Conclusions: The results of the study showed that the prevalence of psychiatric disorders
among children and adolescents in North Khorasan Province is consistent with most of
the studies conducted in this region, except mood, behavioral, and substance use
disorders. These data require a more accurate evaluation and identification of the causes
of such differences.
