Combating depression in women with nursing interventions

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Dec. 20, 2005 - Low-income women at risk of depression can be helped through the use of cognitive-behavioral interventions including affirmation and thought stopping, recent research shows.

In a study lead by Ann R. Peden at the University of Kentucky and funded by the National Institute of Nursing Research and the National Institutes of Health, a group of low-income single mothers received a 6-week group intervention that assisted them in changing their thinking style. To do this, they learned thought stopping techniques and the use of affirmations. Women who received the cognitive-behavioral intervention reported fewer depressive symptoms and chronic stressors, and less negative thinking. These beneficial effects were maintained for six months.

"This study illustrates that cost-effective and easy to deliver nursing interventions can improve the mental health of low-income single mothers," Dr. Peden says. Depression is the most common mental illness in women occurring twice as often as in men. The prevalence of depression in mothers of young children is 35 to 66 percent.
