Examined impact of formal, informal, and societal support systems on mental health of black adolescent mothers (n=170). Found that both lay and professional supports were important for young mother's psychological well-being. Support from male partner, caseworker contact, and membership in support group decreased psychological distress and depression. Support from male partner also enhanced psychological well-being.
