Synopsis: Children of depressed parents may be at greater risk for experiencing an ambulatory care sensitive (ACS) hospitalization than children of non-depressed parents. ACS hospitalizations are often considered avoidable if there is earlier medical intervention or timely primary care. Depression may compromise the ability of the parent to notice early signs of illness among their children thereby reducing the chance of timely care. This study will investigate whether parental depression is a risk factor for child ACS hospitalizations. Also, if parental depression is a risk factor for child ACS hospitalizations, this study will investigate whether parental depression treatment may moderate the likelihood of these child outcomes.
