This cross-sectional correlational study examined the associations between depression and family history of depression, early loss of mother before age 11, number of stressful life events, women’s role strains, interpersonal conflict, parental role strain, perceived stress, social support, and sense of belonging in 142 Thai women (77 depressed and 65 non-depressed). Results from chi-square tests and t-tests revealed that compared to non-depressed women, depressed women were more likely to have a family history of depression and history of loss of mother before age 11; significantly higher stressful life events, parental role strain, interpersonal conflict, and perceived stress; and significantly lower interpersonal resources, perceived social support, and sense of belonging. Results from logistic regression, however, showed that only family history of depression, perceived stress, and sense of belonging predicted depression in Thai women. Results from path analysis showed that 66% of the variance of depression were explained by the proposed model. Perceived stress had the strongest direct effect on severity of depression. Family history of depression had both direct and indirect effects on severity of depression. Number of stressful life events, interpersonal conflict, parental role strain, perceived social support, and sense of belonging had indirect but not direct effects on severity of depression. Loss of mother before age 11 and interpersonal resources had neither direct nor indirect effects on severity of depression. To better understand the effects of other variables in the model, path analysis was performed on the model excluding perceived stress. Results showed that 50% of the variance of depression was explained and sense of belonging had the strongest direct effect on severity of depression. Results from this study contributed significant information for understanding depression in Thai women and can help health care providers in Thailand to provide better care for depressed patients and prevent depression in Thai women.
