Strategies for Coping with a Depressed Mood in Low-Income and Ethnic Minority Mothers at-Risk
MetadataShow full item record
15% to 75% of multi-ethnic mothers experience high levels of depressive symptoms, but few seek treatment. Ways of coping impact the levels and onset of depressive symptoms. Coping styles, including treatment seeking for depression vary among mothers based on socioeconomic status, age and ethnicity. However, few studies have examined strategies for coping with depressed mood and coping’s relation to age, socioeconomic status, and ethnicity among these mothers at-risk. The purpose of this study is to identify the most commonly used strategies for coping with a depressed mood and examine the relationship between coping styles, age, race/ethnicity and income levels among low-income and ethnic minority mothers at risk.
