Former UMaine Researcher Continuing Childhood Depression Study

MPBN has a story about Montreal psychologist William Bukowski, a former UMaine professor, recently published an article about an ongoing study he began in Maine more than 20 years ago. Bukowski told MPBN he worked in the late 1980s with a public school in a small Maine town, which he did not identify for confidentiality reasons, where he surveyed children in grades 3, 4 and 5 and followed them for three years with the help with a guidance counselor. He and found children who had the ability to establish even just one friendship were less likely to be depressed.
