Synopsis: This paper reports rates of conduct disorder (CD) among children up to 13 years old and their use of mental health services across four sectors: specialty Mental Health, Education, Child Welfare, and Juvenile Justice. Data are from the Great Smoky Mountains Study, a longitudinal, population-based study of children in North Carolina. Descriptive results are presented. Findings show early onset of CD symptoms; a lag between the onset of symptoms and service access; high comorbidity; substantial use of services from multiple sectors; high use of Education services; and low use of Juvenile Justice services. Implications for policy are discussed.
