Abstract

This study describes the use of spirituality among African-American women who experience depression. A survey was used to obtain the data for this convenience study. The data were analyzed using SPSS and the findings are displayed using frequency tables. This researcher found that a large majority of African-American women experienced depression but did not seek professional counseling. The study also revealed that church attendance was reported among more than 90% of the participants. These findings suggest that a relationship with other unconventional venues is needed to reach this population.
