Maternal depression in an urban pediatric practice: implications for health care delivery.

Abstract

A scale to measure depressive symptomatology was administered to mothers attending an urban pediatric primary care center. Over 50 per cent of the female heads of households were Black or low income and depressed. This suggests that the provider of pediatric primary care should recognize depression and make appropriate referrals or intervention, since depressed mothers may have a diminished ability to respond to the emotional needs of their children.
