Barney, David D.
WICAZO SA Review, v16 n1 p135-50 Spr 2001
A study examined whether protective factors reduce the effects of depression in American Indian and Alaska Native adolescents. Surveys of 2,034 Native high school students from 33 states indicated that depression moderately influenced self-perceived health status and that caring and connectedness counteracted the risk factors from depression that produced poor health outcomes.
