This article reports results from a long-term follow-up of adolescents with conduct disorder who have been patients at an inpatient child psychiatric unit in Lund, Sweden. Up to now, a total of 186 adolescents have participated in the follow-up study. The subjects are a heavily symptom-loaded group with many problems during their childhood. The study includes self-rating that describe psychiatric symptoms, sense of coherence, family climate and an interviewer rating on health. The follow-up paints a relatively positive picture; approximately 30-50% of the subjects have improved their lives and have an acceptable life situation according to the concepts of "love well", "play well", "work well" and "expect well".
