Abstract:
Study examining clinical and nonclinical aspects of depression and subjective well-being (SWB) among a sample of Native Americans with spinal cord injury (SCI), including factors associated with depression and SWB. Data are from a health-related interview (with measures of depression and SWB) completed via telephone or mail by 97 Native American adults with SCI. Most participants lived on reservations. Results indicate that participants had higher levels of depression and lower level of SWB in 5 of 8 areas compared to non-Native American populations in previous studies. Predictors of higher depression and lower SWB included health status, activity patterns, social support, years of education, and frequency of alcohol use.
