Risk factors for depression among early childhood teachers

This study examined possible risk factors associated with teachers' depression in a variety of early childhood settings. Teachers with lower pay, no health insurance, multiple jobs, greater job stress, and more adult-centered beliefs reported more symptoms of depression. To reduce these symptoms, efforts should be made to support teachers' mental health at multiple levels, including individual, environmental, and policy. (author abstract)
