Abstract

This study aimed to identify factors that predict quality of life (QoL), over and above potential improvements in QoL related to a decrease in psychopathology, in children and adolescents with psychiatric problems. Two hundred and thirty one referred children and adolescents, aged 7–19 years, were followed up across a 1-year period. QoL and psychopathology were assessed, as were a broad range of child, parent, and family/social network factors. Time 1 QoL scores and change in level of psychopathology from Time 1 to Time 2 were important predictors of Time 2 QoL scores. Lower than expected Time 2 QoL was also predicted by the presence at Time 1 of a chronic physical disease, low self-esteem, poor social skills, and stressful life events. Findings can be useful to identify children who are at risk for lower than expected levels of QoL, even after receiving help from mental health agencies.
