 Parental Depression Linked to Lack of Social Support

Parents in low-income environments are more prone to depression when there is a lack of social support, especially in rural regions where mental health and social resources can be deficient, according to a study.

Published in the journal Family Relations, a report on the study says that social support mechanisms like community groups, churches, and school or sports-related activities, can act as a barrier against negative thinking, and allow parents who are prone to depression to make better, more positive choices and engage in healthy parental practices.

The findings support a holistic care plan for families in need, combining skill-based interventions with social recommendations.

These measures may help to decrease the detrimental effects of economic stress on individual and family functioning.
