Özet

Objective: We examined the prevalence of emotional and behavioral problems, and associated factors in children and adolescents aged 6-18 years that were reared in orphanages. We aimed to compare these children and adolescents with a notionally representative age-matched sample that were raised by their own families and to identify mental health service needs in orphanages.
