180 British South Asian women were sampled to pilot test an educational pamphlet about depression & suicidality. After reading the pamphlet, significantly more women assessed themselves as willing to confide in their clinicians, friends, & spouses if they felt depressed or suicidal, rather than not telling anyone. Also, more women reported that they felt that antidepressants were helpful for depression after they read the pamphlet. These changes remained 4-6 weeks later. (10 refs.)
