Lifetime history of psychopathology was assessed in the relatives of 26 preadolescents (13 depressed-abused and 13 depressed-nonabused children). Compared to that of relatives of 27 normal control children, relatives of depressed-abused children had a nine-fold increased risk for major depression and a three- to nine-fold increased risk for related mental disorders.
