Depression and Stress in Street Youth.
Ayerst, Sandra L.
Adolescence, v34 n135 p567-75 Fall 1999
Explores stress and depression levels in Canadian street youth and ways in which they cope. Results show that street youth (n=27) reported more stress and depression than non-runaways (n=27). Street youth were more likely to engage in acts of self-harm and to use drugs and alcohol, while non-runaways used more productive problem solving and disclosure/discussion with someone they trust.
