Depression in Mothers in a Multi-Ethnic Urban Industrial Municipality in Melbourne. Aetiological Factors and Effects on Infants and Preschool Children.
Williams, Howard; Carmichael, Allan
Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry and Allied Disciplines, v26 n2 p277-88 Mar 1985
Comparison of poor Australian-born and immigrant mothers revealed a significantly higher rate of depression among recently arrived, non-English-speaking immigrant mothers having no supporting social network. Depressed Australian-born mothers often had unhappy, unstable, and insecure childhoods. Behavioral problems in infants and preschool children were more common in families with depressed mothers.
