Abstract

Objective: Stemmed from the idea of "there is no juvenile delinquent, but rather there are juveniles draged to crime"; the children and adolescents who have been referred to Mus State Hospital Child and Adolescent Psychiatric outpatient clinic with different alleged crime types were examined retrospectively, in terms of depression, self-esteem, and various socio-demographic factors.
