Depression is a major health problem and growing cause of disability. Relapse and recurrent illness episodes are not uncommon and associated costs can be enormous. Identification of predictors of treatment success and relapse is needed for today's psychiatric services. Depression coping self-efficacy, defined as confidence that one can perform tasks designed to provide some control over depressive symptoms, may predict patients at risk for relapse. The Depression Coping Self-Efficacy Scale (DCSES) is a tool in development that appears promising for measuring and targeting interventions for depression (Perraud, in press). In a previous study, the authors examined validity and reliability of the DCSES among 25 partial hospitalization program patients and 25 inpatients treated for depression. Patients completed the DCSES at admission and discharge to their treatment programs. The purposes of this second study were to describe the frequencies and purposes/types of health care visits the 50 study patients sought during the year since discharge, and explore relationships between DCSES scores one year ago and frequencies of healthcare visits since treatment. Patient records are being reviewed for analysis. Findings will provide further data on the DCSES and on depression coping self-efficacy as a possible predictor of relapse and use of health care resources.
