Abstract

To explore the concept of the young adult chronic patient as a distinct clinical entity, the author analyzed a sample of 134 chronic patients on six variables relating to style of interaction with service providers and on diagnostic and demographic variables. The results showed that the 105 younger chronic patients in the sample wEre more likely than the older patients to be male, to be referred to treatment for suicidal and homicidal gestures and ideation, to have a diagnosis of personality disorder, and to be overrepresented in the treatment population. The author believes the combination of these factors helps create disproportionately high visibility for young adult chronic patients and requires special provisions for their engagement in treatment.
