Synopsis: High levels of depression were found in a larger study examining the quality of life of primary caregivers of children with mental health needs. The sample consisted of 100 primary caregivers, primarily parents, of children, 2 to 19 years old, receiving mental health services in a community setting. Using the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale, 38% scored 22 points or more, indicating they might have major depression; and 56% scored 15 points or more, indicating they might have mild to major depression. Factors associated with caregivers' depression will be shared, including those that mediate, moderate, or predict depression.
