This study determines the undesirability for the individual symptoms of depression, & examines the impact that personal experience with depression has to these scores. 75 subjects (19 with current depression, 21 with past depression, & 35 healthy controls) indicated their perceived undesirability to 10 symptoms. Results indicate that psychological symptoms of depression, such as suicidal thoughts, were ranked more undesirable than the somatic symptoms of depression. (17 refs) (SC)
