The NICE interactive flowchart covers a range of interventions for conduct disorders in children and young people aged under 18 years, including treatment, indicated prevention and selective prevention. It does not cover universal prevention.

Conduct disorders, and associated antisocial behaviour, are the most common mental health and behavioural problems in children and young people, with a prevalence of 5% among children and young people aged between 5 and 16 years. Almost 40% of looked-after children, those who have been abused and those on child protection or safeguarding registers have a conduct disorder.

Conduct disorders are characterised by repetitive and persistent patterns of antisocial, aggressive or defiant behaviour that amounts to significant and persistent violations of age-appropriate social expectations. They have a significant impact on functioning and quality of life.
