[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] This phenomenological study explores the perceptions and descriptions of depression in a group of Nigerian-born immigrant women living in the United States (US). A purposive sample of Nigerian-born women, 18 years and older, will be recruited from an urban, southwestern US community to participate in the study. Data from sem-structures interviews will be analyzed following the Colaizzi (1978) method. An initial pilot study with 4 women who have lived in the US less than 5 years has identified 4 themes: a.) depression is described as madness and evil spirit-driven, b.) the stigma of depression results in isolation/rejection, c.) depression is treated with prayers/spiritual deliverance, and d.) attitudes may be shifting indicating a need for education. Further data collection and analysis will explore those women who have lived in the US for 5 years or less as well as those who have lived in the US more than 5 years.
