Socio-Demographic and Coping Correlates of Depressive Symptoms among Low-Income and Ethnic Minority Mothers
MetadataShow full item record
In published studies, 15% to 75% of low-income and ethnic minority mothers report high levels of depressive symptoms in published studies. Few studies have explored socio-demographic and coping correlates of depressive symptoms in vulnerable mothers to inform preventive interventions. In this study, it was found that coping styles and income levels independently predicted levels of depressive symptoms. Interventions to reduce depressive symptoms can target coping strategies such as social support and support access to economic resources in the community.
