Comorbidity of Psychiatric Disorders

Many individuals with one type of mental disorder often develop other types of mental disorders across their lifespan. Lifetime comorbidity among mental disorders is common. Understanding patterns of comorbidity in mental disorders is important for our understanding of the health consequences of mental disorders and their burden on public health. Furthermore, the overlap of psychiatric conditions is a significant challenge for healthcare professionals and special consideration for medications needs to be coordinated by healthcare professionals offering treatment.

This topic will include a broad range of diagnoses of mental disorders in the DSM-5 and ICD-11 such as mood disorders, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia and psychotic disorders, substance use disorders, gambling disorders, Impulse-control disorders, eating disorders, OCD, ADHD, autism, and learning disabilities. Article types may include original research and reviews on the topic. It is intended to bring up-to-date knowledge on the age- and sex hazard ratios (HRs) and cumulative incidence proportions (CIPs) for all disorder pairs studied. This would have important implications for our understanding and treatment of mental disorders.

Keywords: Psychiatric disorders, co-morbidity, public health, incidence, hazard-ratio
