Continuities from earlier mixed disorders may provide one route, though questionnaire-based data suggest that this is unlikely to be the whole story (Rutter, 1991). Antisocial adolescents showed elevated rates of emotional distress in early adulthood, independent of levels of emotional problems in the teens. Instead, effects may be dependent on later antisocial lifestyles. Robins (1978) was among the first to note that job troubles, poor marital relationships and other concomitants of ongoing antisocial difficulties could function as stressors in adult life.

Early links between conduct problems and depression seem likely to reflect correlated or shared risks (Fergusson, Lynskey, & Horwood, 1996), and the mixed pattern appears to share more in common with pure conduct than pure emotional difficulties (Steinhausen & Reitzle, 1996). From the limited evidence available to date, comorbid depression has little effect in modifying the course of antisocial behavior. In a follow-up of a child guidance sample, Harrington, Fudge, Rutter, Pickles, and Hill (1991) found that adult outcomes for a small group showing mixed CO and depressive disorders were closely similar to those with CD alone.
